He is the editor of the editorial page of The Times of Trenton. During his career with the newspaper, he also has been Washington correspondent, state capitol correspondent, metropolitan editor, state editor and Sunday editor.

He has written the annual U.S. Stamp Yearbook published by Linn's Stamp News since 1988. His book Jenny!

He has written three other Inside Story booklets for Unicover, and has contributed scores of articles on a wide range of subjects to philatelic publications.

He also wrote The American Way of Graft, a study of political corruption, published in 1975 by the Center for Analysis of Public Issues in Princeton, New Jersey, and used as supplementary reading in several college political science courses.
