Correction: Obit-Hartman story

Published:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- In a Feb. 10 story about the death of longtime Associated Press foreign correspondent Carl Hartman, The Associated Press erroneously reported that Hartman served as chief of the AP bureau in Frankfurt, Germany. Hartman served in the bureau but was not the chief of bureau. The story also reported incorrectly that the AP dates from 1847. The news cooperative began operations in 1846.
