Horace Havemeyer III, Founding Publisher of Metropolis, Dies at 72

21 March, 2014

-By Cody Calamaio


Horace Havemeyer III, founding publisher of Metropolis magazine, died March 19 at age 72. He suffered from a neurological disorder that left him paralyzed since 2011, and died peacefully in his home, according to a tribute written by Metropolis.

Havemeyer founded the design magazine in 1981, and recently stepped down as publisher, tapping longtime editor in chief Susan S. Szenasy to take over his role.

"He loved design. He respected architecture. He was an avid reader with a phenomenal memory. He was fascinated by the creative mind. He read broadly, including a lot of history. He was an opera fan, and an expert sailor," Szenasy wrote. "Horace was a cultured man who always wanted to know more about the world we live in."
