Without Judith Jones, the world may never have known about the life of Anne Frank or the cuisine of Julia Child.
The legendary editor rescued Frank’s personal journal from a publisher’s reject pile and introduced her first-person account of the Holocaust as “The Diary of a Young Girl.”
She also spent months trying Child’s recipes that filled the pages of “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.”
Jones died today at her summer home in Walden, Vermont. She was 93.
