Bob Giles to step down as curator of Harvard's Nieman Foundation

The Boston Globe
October 2, 2010
Bob Giles, curator of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University, will retire in the spring, after a decade on the job.

“I think the number 77 says a lot about my decision,’’ said Giles, 77, who joined the foundation after working for more than 50 years as a reporter and editor at newspapers in Detroit; Rochester, N.Y.; and Akron, Ohio, according to a statement posted on the Nieman website. The foundation runs a prestigious fellowship program for midcareer journalists.

As curator, Giles has had almost complete responsibility for selecting the international fellows, he said, and worked with the selection committee to choose the US fellows. Other duties include fund-raising, managing budgets, moderating panel discussions, and publishing Nieman Reports, the foundation’s quarterly magazine.

“It’s been a great experience,’’ Giles said, “one of the best in my life.’’

He said he hopes the foundation continues to stress the education of fellows, who take a year off from the daily grind of reporting to study the topics they cover. Informed journalists, Giles said, can only benefit “a readership and a viewership that’s struggling to understand the complex issues in our society.’’
