Faculty in Residence
Starting in the fall of 2007, Mathey College’s Faculty Member in Residence has been Evan Thomas, the Ferris Professor of Journalism and a Lecturer in the Council of the Humanities. An award-winning Assistant Managing Editor at Newsweek magazine, a regular panelist on the TV show “Inside Washington,” and the author of six books, Evan Thomas was recruited by Princeton to teach courses in journalism and public affairs and to serve as a consultant to student journalists on campus. At Mathey College, he has hosted twice-monthly “In the News” discussion sessions as well as the dinner-and-discussion group called the “Walter Lord Society” (see the separate page under “Council and Clubs” on this website). Evan Thomas’s most recent book, The War Lovers: Roosevelt, Lodge, Hearst and the Rush to Empire, 1898 (2010) has received enthusiastic reviews.
