Join Volunteer Docent Marilee O’Brien for a late summer walk through Mount Auburn to visit the gravesites of some of America’s most influential journalists. Our ladies and gentlemen of the press include: James Russell Lowell, editor and publisher of the venerable Atlantic; Frank Crowninshield, founding editor of Vanity Fair; investigative journalist I.F. Stone; and popular 19th century newspaper columnist Fanny Fern, called by one writer “the Oprah of her day”.  We’ll discuss these four and many others who informed the citizens of their day and set a standard for those who came after.
