Newsweek Chairman Sidney Harman has died of complications from acute myeloid leukemia, The Daily Beast reports.

He was 93. The website reports that Harman learned of his illness a month ago but continued working as executive chairman of Newsweek, and Chairman of the Academy for Polymathic Study at the University of Southern California.

Harman orchestrated the purchase of Newsweek last year after The Washington Post placed it for sale.
