Lawrence Hubert "Larry" Taylor, a pioneering WMAR-TV broadcast engineer who was also an original Rodgers Forge resident, died July 15 of complications from a fall at Oak Crest Village retirement community.
He was 90.
Mr. Taylor, the son of a truck driver and a homemaker, was born in Baltimore and raised in Waverly. He was a 1938 City College graduate.
After high school, he attended Maryland Mechanical Art School and the Radio Institute of Baltimore, and began working in broadcasting in the late 1930s as an engineer for radio station WCBM. "It was a peanut whistle of a station then," Mr. Taylor said in a 2007 Baltimore Sun interview.
