Frederick John Ware Obituary, 1981

OMAHA, Neb. — Frederick Ware, whose news-writing credo of ‘keep it short and make it sing’ shaped the careers of hundreds of journalists during his 47 years with The Omaha World-Herald, died Tuesday of cancer. He was 82.

Following brief stints with the Nebraska State Journal in Lincoln, United Press and Associated Press, Ware joined The World-Herald in 1920 as state editor. He later was best known as a sports writer, sports columnist and editor of the sports department he established.

Those who followed Ware’s sports reports for 18 years have credited him with helping build the University of Nebraska Cornhusker following known today as ‘Big Red fever.’

Ware became city editor in 1942 and was promoted to managing editor in 1943, the year the newspaper won a Pulitzer Prize. He became executive editor and vice president in 1961. He stepped aside as executive editor in 1966 and became an advisory editor and retired on Jan. 1, 1968.

Ware’s survivors include his widow, Clara Louis, a daughter, a son, six grandchildren and a great-grandson.

At Ware’s request, no funeral will be held. He had suggested memorials to Clarkson Hospital, where he died, and to Neale Woods, a part of the statewide aboretum.
