Malcolm Bingay began his newspaper career as a teenager. He served as sports editor for the Detroit News from 1906-1910, and as city editor from 1910-1914. Mr. Bingay was promoted to managing editor in 1914 and was sent to manage the London, England bureau of the Detroit News in 1925. After returning to Detroit he joined the Detroit Free Press in 1930 as editorial director. As a columnist for the Detroit Free Press, he authored two daily features, "Good Morning" and "Iffy the Dopester". Mr. Bingay received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from Wayne University in 1932, and Olivet College made him a Doctor of Laws in 1946. In his own profession of journalism, Mr. Bingay won the coveted Pulitzer Prize for a series of medical articles which were cited for their sharp insight and brilliant style. As a direct result of that honor, the Wayne County Medical Society named Mr. Bingay to the Detroit Medical Hall of Fame and conferred upon him an honorary membership. In April, 1945, Mr. Bingay was one of a group of twelve law makers and seventeen publishers and editors to see first-hand evidence of Nazi atrocities in Europe, visiting a number of concentration camps in German. Malcolm Bingay died in Detroit in August, 1953.
