David Greenway’s work as a foreign correspondent for Time magazine took him to far corners of the globe, where he reported from Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Saigon during times of political unrest. From Time, he moved to The Washington Post under Ben Bradlee, reporting from the Vietnam War, then opening the Post’s first Jerusalem bureau. “Who could ask for anything more?” David asks.
He credits Milton faculty member A.O. Smith with opening up a new world for him through literature.
“Milton got me interested in foreign places,” David says. “I was determined to have a career that would include travel.”
Now retired, David enjoys sailing, hiking, and bicycling, and he still keeps up with friends from Milton and Forbes House. David has included Milton as a beneficiary in his will, and he looks at today’s School, the one from which his granddaughter graduated in 2013, with appreciation.
“Milton has held onto its principles but has moved with the times; you can’t have the same school you had in 1949,” David says. His advice to today’s students is simple: “Take advantage of everything Milton gave you and try to give something back—not just to Milton but to society.”
