  • 4 N.E. residents awarded MacArthur Foundation grants

    Boston Globe - 09/17/2014

    Mary L. Bonauto was on a recent getaway to Little Cranberry Island, a lovely spot off the coast of Maine where cellphone service can be spotty. So it took a while before she saw that someone had tried to reach her about a half-dozen times.

    “They kept calling,” the civil rights lawyer recalled Wednesday. “I thought it was an emergency.”

    As it turns out, it was the MacArthur Foundation trying to track her down, and with big news. Bonauto, a leading force in the legal fight for same-sex marriage in Massachusetts and across the country, had received a MacArthur Fellowship, a prize familiarly known as a “genius grant.”
