Ellen Goodman’s insight, common sense and verbal flair have attracted a national following since 1976, when her Boston Globe column was first syndicated by The Washington Post Writers Group. Today her column appears on op-ed pages in over 400 newspapers across the country.

Goodman has been with the Boston Globe, where she is an associate editor as well as a columnist, since 1967. She was graduated from Radcliffe College in 1963 and spent a year at Harvard as a Nieman Fellow.

In 1980, she won the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary.

Her book on social change, Turning Points was published in 1979. Five collections of her columns have also been published: Close to Home, At Large, Keeping in Touch, Making Sense, and Value Judgments.

Goodman’s columns have earned her numerous awards, including the American Society of Newspaper Editors Distinguished Writing Award. The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights awarded her the Hubert H. Humphrey Award for her dedication to equality. She also received the President’s Award from the National Women’s Political Caucus and the International Matrix Award from Women in Communication.

In 1996, Goodman was the first Lorry I. Lokey Visiting Professor at Stanford University.

Born in 1941, she lives with her husband in Brookline, Massachusetts.
