L.A. Times writer wins Pulliam Editorial Fellowship

Staff Report

Karin Klein, an editorial writer for the Los Angeles Times, is the 2006 recipient of the Eugene C. Pulliam Fellowship for Editorial Writing presented annually by the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation of the Society of Professional Journalists.

Klein’s project will focus on the first generation of children diagnosed with ADHD as they reach young adulthood. Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the American Psychological Association’s decision to change the classification of attention deficit disorder (ADD) to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Klein becomes the 27th individual to receive the award.

Her work was recognized Sept. 16 during the 2006 National Conference of Editorial Writers Convention in Pittsburgh. As the Pulliam Fellow, Klein will receive $75,000 from the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation to conduct research on her project.

The Fellowship will enable Kline to take time away from her duties at the Times to research and focus on her project. 

The stipend will allow her to take college courses and travel to visit researchers, activists, individuals and various communities across the nation. She plans to write a series of opinion pieces over the course of the year for the Los Angeles Times’ Sunday commentary section and produce a book to be published within the next 18 months. 

The Eugene C. Pulliam Fellowship was first offered in 1977. It is funded by a gift from Mrs. Eugene C. Pulliam, honoring the memory of her husband, one of the original members of the Society and former publisher of The Indianapolis Star, The Indianapolis News, The Arizona Republic and The Phoenix Gazette.
