Emil Corwin, who retired at age 96 from the Food and Drug Administration as the oldest federally employed public affairs officer, died of cardiac arrest March 15 at his home in Chevy Chase. He was 107.

Mr. Corwin, who began his career in the 1920s as a journalist in Massachusetts, joined the FDA in 1974, when he was 70. He flirted with retirement four years later but returned to his desk after a week away from work. He was quick to point out that his sons retired before he did.
