Sad news from my grad school alma mater: Reese Cleghorn, the former dean of the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism, just passed away a few days ago. He was 78.
Read the tribute on the UMD website here, and make sure you scroll down and read the comments because they are really lovely. (Many are from some amazing journalists, too.) A lot of good things happened at the j-school under his leadership. He will be missed.
