Commentary from the Daily Editor, Stephanie Steinberg:
Michigan Daily reporters and editors who attended the 2011 Michigan Press Association Convention in Detroit walked away from the weekend with a better understanding of the journalism industry in Michigan and ideas to improve The Michigan Daily's coverage.
When visiting his old stomping ground, The Michigan Daily offices, Tom Hayden paused to give a brief testimonial.
On his September visit to The Michigan Daily, Rick Berke '80, National Editor for The New York Times stopped to give a brief testimonial.
I started taking photos for the Daily the summer of 1957 and for the next 4 years or so took photos for the Daily and/or Ensian. I received both a BS and MS in Chemical Engineering from Michigan. Following graduate school in 1971, I went to work for Kodak. When I left Kodak in 1993, I started a new career as a technical writer and consultant covering the rapidly developing digital imaging marketplace. Since then, I've written about digital imaging for a variety of publications worldwide.
I've posted a few photos on the web that might be of interest to Michigan viewers:
When Kennedy was shot, I helped compose the wood block type headline. Then some of us ran around campus distributing a special edition. Ron Wilton was editor, Gerry Storch, News and me asst. The woman who would later be my maid of honor, Marjorie Brahms, was ed page asst. I went on to Medill for an MSJ. And subsequently got a husband from a path begun at the Daily. We're retired now. Some might know that guy I married, Paul Janensch, former editor, APME President and now Quinnipiac U. Prof Emeritus of Journalism.
Pulitzer Prize winner and columnist for The Washington Post, Eugene Robinson stopped by the Daily offices in October of 2010. We happened to have a video camera on hand and asked Gene for a testimonial about his days spent at The Michigan Daily. He was co-editor of the Daily with the late Chris Parks in 1974.

ARLINGTON, Va. — University alum Eugene Robinson’s house was bustling on a humid afternoon late last summer. His nephew was relaxing on the couch, while his wife, Avis, and a friend were chatting and working in the kitchen. Like most in the Washington area in August, the household was preparing for a vacation.
