Venerated Financial Journalist Carol Loomis to Inaugurate John J. Curran ’75 Lectures in Journalism Series at Bard College on Monday, October 5
ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.— On Monday, October 5, Bard College will present a talk by financial journalist and editor Carol Loomis to inaugurate the John J. Curran ’75 Lectures in Journalism series. Loomis is the former senior editor-at-large of Fortune magazine, and the coiner of the term “hedge fund.” The editor of Warren Buffett's annual shareholder letter, she has been recognized by the New York Times for her success in battling gender stereotypes within the financial-services industry, having started her career in the 1950s as one of only two female reporters at Fortune. The Reformed Broker calls Loomis “a lion of financial journalism,” while ValueWalk celebrates her as “without doubt, the greatest business writer of all time.”
Loomis will be introduced by Bard Writer in Residence Wyatt Mason. Her talk is presented by the Written Arts Program and Office of Development and Alumni/ae Affairs. It takes place at 4:45 p.m. in Weis Cinema in the Bertelsmann Campus Center and is free and open to the public. For more information, call 845-758-7054, or e-mail [email protected].
As part of the series, Loomis will also speak in New York City on October 26. The talk takes place at 6 p.m. in the Time Life Building, 1271 Avenue of the Americas, 2nd floor. The event is free and open to the public, but preregistration and photo ID are required for entry into the Time Life Building.

Curran ’75 Lectures in Journalism honor the memory of a proud Bardian whose dedication to ethical reporting in journalism informed a trusting readership for over a quarter of a century and promoted a culture of honesty, integrity, and truth.
