Rose Glavinovich, a reporter who covered Berkeley for the Oakland Tribune for 42 years, died Saturday night at Alta Bates Hospital in Berkeley at the age of 101.
Ms. Glavinovich was born in San Francisco and moved to the East Bay after the 1906 earthquake and fire destroyed the family home.
Her first newspaper job was as a society reporter with the old Berkeley Gazette. She moved to the Tribune's Berkeley bureau in 1919, where she covered police news, the courts, the university campus and general city affairs until her retirement in 1961.
Ms. Glavinovich was known to instill fear in young reporters entrusted to her care. Those who passed muster called themselves ''Rose's Boys.'' There are no immediate survivors.
