Former McGraw-Hill Exec Tom Tully Dies at 70
Mailing industry advocate.
Thomas W. Tully, a former senior executive at McGraw-Hill and long-time mailing industry advocate, passed away December 27 after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 70.
Tully, who at one time was a columnist for FOLIO:, spent 30 years at McGraw-Hill and was a member of the Postmaster General's Mailers Technical Advisory Committee (MTAC)â€”of which he was national chair from 1996-2000â€”and the Periodicals Operations Review Team.
â€śTom Tully was a remarkable individual and was a magnificent figure in Washington,â€ť American Business Media president Gordon T. Hughes II said in a statement. â€śNot only did he represent The McGraw-Hill Companies, but Tom represented the very best in business media.â€ť ABM named an award after Tully in 2000.
â€śAlthough Tomâ€™s first loyalty was to McGraw-Hill, his efforts benefited all periodicals mailers,â€ť ABM general counsel David Straus said. â€śFrom our travels together, I learned that everyone who knew what USPS stood for knew Tom. More importantly, they liked him.â€ť
