Sumner Redstone, Boston Latin School graduate, dies at 97

The Hollywood Reporter reports the death of the West End native, who took his father’s chain of Dedham-based movie theaters and turned it into a media empire – after graduating Boston Latin School, Harvard and Harvard Law School, with a break during World War II to help decode Japanese military messages.

In 1979, he narrowly escaped death during a stay at the Copley Plaza when it caught fire.
