American writer, the winner of a Pulitzer Prize and a Distinguished Writing Award from the American Society of Newspaper Editors commentary as a columnist for the Boston Globe in 1997.

Eileen McNamara grew up in the Boston area where her father was a postal worker. She recalled that as a young girl she used to fetch the Evening Globe off her family porch and bring it to her father. She joined the Boston Globe in 1976 as an editorial secretary and went on to become an award-winning reporter. Her column appeared twice weekly for only 18 months before she earned the Pulitzer Prize and the Distinguished Writing Award from the American Society of Newspaper Editors in 1997.

A graduate of Barnard College and Columbia University’s School of Journalism, McNamara was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard in 1988 and went on to lecture on media and public policy at Brandeis University. In 1995 she published a book about the malpractice case against Harvard psychiatrist Margaret Bean-Bayog and the death of Paul Lozano.

McNamara is married to Globe sportswriter Peter May and is the mother of three young children.
