BOSTON (AP) - Anthony Lewis, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author and New York Times columnist, has died. He was 85.

Lewis was married to Margaret Marshall, former chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. She retired in 2010 to spend more time with her husband after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. A court spokeswoman confirmed the death.

Lewis won the Pulitzer in 1955 for national reporting for the Washington Daily News and again in 1963 for national reporting for The New York Times. From 1969 to 2001, he wrote the column "Abroad at Home" for the Times.

His books included "Portrait of a Decade: The Second American Revolution," ''Gideon's Trumpet," and "Make No Law: The Sullivan Case and the First Amendment."

The Cambridge resident was a 1948 graduate of Harvard College.
