  • Colleagues celebrate lasting legacy of former Globe editor Tom Winship at scholarship launch

    Boston Globe - 03/30/2022

    Many of the most prominent Boston journalists of generations past gathered Tuesday to celebrate former Boston Globe editor Tom Winship and his legacy of breaking down barriers in newsrooms as Northeastern University announced a journalism scholarship in Winship’s name intended to increase diversity in the industry.

    Winship led the Globe from 1965 to 1984, through the Vietnam War, the desegregation of Boston Public Schools, and the newspaper’s first dozen Pulitzer Prizes. He was an early advocate for diversity in the newsroom, former Globe colleagues recalled at the packed event inside Northeastern’s Egan Research Center. Winship was widely and passionately credited with lifting the Globe into the upper echelons of American journalism.
