Roll Call Founder Dead At 90

Yudain published the first issue of Roll Call in 1955, but ultimately sold the paper in 1986. Yudain continued working for the paper as a columnist.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Sid Yudain,” said Keith White, managing director of CQ Roll Call, in a statement. “Sid’s vision for a newspaper uniting the congressional community was the stepping-stone for many D.C. publications that exist today.”
