Dori Maynard

@Dori Maynard is the president of the Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education. Before being named president in January 2001, she directed the History Project, which leads the way in preserving and protecting the contributions of those courageous journalists of color who broke into the mainstream media against the backdrop of the turbulent 1960s and 1970s. Dori also heads the Fault Lines project, a framework that helps journalists more accurately cover their communities. She is the co-author of Letters to My Children, a compilation of nationally syndicated columns by her late father, Bob Maynard, with introductory essays by Dori. As a reporter, she has experience on both coasts - The Bakersfield Californian and The Patriot Ledger in Quincy, Mass. - as well as a stint at the Detroit Free Press, covering U.S. Senate and mayoral campaigns, and city hall. In 1993 she and her father became the first father-daughter duo ever to be appointed Nieman scholars at Harvard University. Bob Maynard had won this prestigious fellowship in 1966. While at Harvard, Dori specialized in research on public policy and poverty. She worked regularly with her father in researching and preparing for his appearances on This Week With David Brinkley and the MacNeil Lehrer Report. Dori graduated from Middlebury College, Vt., with a B.A. in American history.
