Roll Call Founder Sid Yudain Dies at 90

Washington, D.C., October 21, 2013 - CQ Roll Call is mourning the loss of Roll Call founder Sid Yudain. Sid died Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m., of cancer. He was 90 years old. Sid will be buried at Arlington Cemetery and the National Press Club will host a memorial service, dates to be determined. Sid is survived by his wife of 40 years, Lael, two children, Rachel Kuchinad of New York City and Raymond Yudain of Los Angeles, and three grandchildren.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Sid Yudain,” said Keith White, Managing Director, CQ Roll Call. Sid leaves behind a storied legacy as the founder of Roll Call. A devoted member of Capitol Hill, Sid’s vision for a newspaper uniting the congressional community was the stepping-stone for many D.C. publications that exist today. Sid’s passion emanates through the CQ Roll Call newsroom day in and day out. We send our sincere condolences and thoughts to the Yudain family.”
