Ore. editor had heart attack at woman's apartment

Oregonian editorial page editor was with 23-year-old woman when he went into cardiac arrest By The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ' The Oregonian says the newspaper's editorial page editor was with a 23-year-old woman at her apartment when he went into cardiac arrest over the weekend.

Sixty-three-year-old Robert Caldwell was pronounced dead Saturday at a Portland hospital.

The newspaper said Caldwell became unresponsive after a sex act at the woman's apartment, and she called 911. She told Washington County sheriff's deputies she met Caldwell at a community college about a year ago and he had given her cash for books and other things in exchange for sex. She said Caldwell had not given her money that day.

Caldwell was married and had three daughters. He led The Oregonian's editorial board since November 1995, and the paper won a Pulitzer Prize in editorial writing under his direction.
