Our religious journalism fellow for the September–December term under CHRISTIANITY TODAY’S cooperative program with the Washington Journalism Center will be E. Russell Chandler, religion editor and general-assignment reporter on the Modesto (Calif.) Bee. Chandler is an ordained Presbyterian minister with cresting interest in religious journalism as a career. He holds the B.S. from U.C.L.A. and the B.D. from Princeton Seminary (where he finished second in the class of ’58), and has studied a year at New College, Edinburgh.
CHRISTIANITY TODAY’S former fellows have put their journalistic experience to good use. O. Wilson Okite is an assistant in the foreign-affairs section of the New York office of Time magazine. Edward H. Pitts is director of administrative services for Laubach Literacy, Inc., in Syracuse. James L. Adams has returned to his position as a reporter and religion writer for the Cincinnati Post and Times Star. William D. Freeland is a reporter for UPI in Columbia, South Carolina.
Our continuance of the program is contingent on the provision, by some interested agency or individual, of a $2,000 semi-annual stipend to cover a qualified journalism fellow’s minimal subsistence during a term at the Washington Journalism Center.1
