Sulzberger was one of four children of Iphigene Ochs Sulzberger (1892–1990) and Arthur Hays Sulzberger (1891–1968), the publisher of The New York Times from 1935 to 1961. Her brother, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger served as publisher of The New York Times and chairman and CEO of the Times Company; her sister Marian Sulzberger Heiskell was a philanthropist; and her other sister, Ruth Sulzberger Holmberg was a publisher.
She graduated from Smith College in 1946, and from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1949. Her internship was in pathology at Grasslands Hospital of Valhalla, New York.
She was a director of The New York Times from 1974 to 2000. She authored a book Younger (2003). In the early 1990s, she provided financing for what became the J. P. Sulzberger Genome Center at Columbia’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, her alma mater.
She died on 21 February 2011 at age 87 from pancreatic cancer in her native New York City. She had two sons: Daniel Hays Cohen and James Matthew Cohen.
