The FCC is very sad to announce the passing of its much beloved member Clare Hollingworth at age 105.
Clare had a remarkable career as a foreign correspondent, beginning with the scoop of the century when she reported the start of World War II.
FCC president Tara Joseph said: “We are very sad to hear about Clare’s passing. She was a tremendous inspiration to us all and a treasured member of our club. We were so pleased that we could celebrate her 105th birthday with her this past year.”
Details of the funeral arrangements and a wake at the club will be announced later.
