Ex-New York Times writer named Cox professor
Catherine Manegold, a seven-time Pulitzer Prize nominee and former New York Times correspondent, has been named the James M. Cox Professor of Journalism.

“To have the kind of influence and hopefully inspiration on students, and to frame the orientation for a field that I am truly passionate for is very attractive to me,” Manegold said.

Manegold wrote for The New York Times from 1992–99, and shared in a Pulitzer team award for the paper’s coverage of the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing.

She also has written a book called In Glory’s Shadow, based on her coverage of Shannon Faulkner’s lawsuit against The Citadel in 1995.

In the fall, Manegold will teach courses in journalism ethics and the history of journalism.


Biomed department to be named for scientist The Georgia Tech/Emory Department of Biomedical
The Georgia Tech/Emory Department of Biomedical Engineering will be renamed the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.

The rechristening honors the late scientist whose foundation donated $25 million to the department to support a department chair, faculty chairs at both Emory and Georgia Tech, laboratories, graduate fellowships, undergraduate clinical education and the Coulter Endowment for Translational/
Clinical Research.

While neither Emory’s nor Georgia Tech’s names will appear in the department’s new title, the partnership will remain intact.
