D Magazine founder and longtime publisher Wick Allison died Sept. 1 after a lengthy battle with cancer, according to a story in D Magazine.

Allison was born in 1948 and came up with the business plan for D Magazine while in school at SMU’s Cox School of Business. He left school and founded the magazine, along with Jim Atkinson, in 1974.

Allison died in New York at a fishing camp he went to every summer, according to the magazine. He was with his wife Christine and his four daughters.

“Without a doubt, Wick Allison was among the best publishers I have ever met,” said Richard Connor, president and publisher of the Fort Worth Business Press. “My list of bright publishers is short, but he is at the top. I sought his counsel several times and he was always insightful, forward-thinking, courteous and helpful. Dallas has lost a bright and thoughtful leader, a true visionary.”
