Barbara Greenspun

Barbara Greenspun was instrumental in keeping the Las Vegas Sun financially alive for four decades as the “silent” partner of husband Hank Greenspun, the crusading founder of the newspaper. She was the gentle, persistent voice on the doorsteps of advertisers, bringing in cash during lean years. She helped the newspaper survive both a 1952 advertising boycott and a fire that leveled its plant in 1963. Before his death in 1989, Hank made his wife co-publisher because, friends say, he knew she could do the job.
