Longtime Ford PR official Mecke dead at 82

By Robert Ankeny

DETROIT -- Theodore Mecke Jr., a longtime Ford Motor Co. public-relations official, died Wednesday, Sept. 21, in Detroit of complications after heart surgery.

Mecke, of Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., was 82. He joined Ford in 1949 after working for newspapers in Pennsylvania and was vice president for public affairs and head of Ford communications when he retired in 1980.

In the mid-1980s, Mecke founded a corporate-communications con******cy called Hartwood Associates.

During 1987-88, he worked for the Detroit Free Press "to help plan the courting of Detroit's corporate and civic elite" to win support for the joint operating agreement between Knight-Ridder Inc. and Gannett Co. for the Free Press and the Detroit News, journalist Bryan Gruley wrote in Paper Losses, his book about the JOA.
