BLUM, ERNEST journalist, linguist, and travel writer passed away peacefully on January 17, 2018. Ernest had a successful career as a journalist and traveled extensively. His passion for learning new languages enabled him to work alongside friend and employer Hideaki Miyake at Economic Salon, reporting on Japanese business and cultural news. His time at Travel Weekly in Miami, FL, where he covered the cruise industry, was a great pleasure for him. Ernest's years at the University of Chicago, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in 1952 and a Master of Arts in 1959, were a fulfilling experience he looked back on with fondness and pride. He also loved operating a retail property very close to where he grew up in Miami. He is survived by his wife Lois and children Laurie and Michael.
