Isaac Asimov’s Brother Stanley Was a Journalist at Newsday

Isaac Asimov is a writer who needs no introduction. But his brother Stanley might. Born in Brooklyn to Russian immigrant parents, Stanley Asimov was also a writer although not involved in the fantastical kind of literature that his brother dabbled in. Asimov, who lived in Roslyn Heights, was a journalist writing about politics for Newsday eventually rising to become a vice president at the Long Island paper. He retired from Newsday in 1992 and in 1995, the same year he died at age 66 of leukemia, Asimov edited a collection of letters by his later brother into a book titled Yours, Isaac Asimov.

And now you know that!
