Patricia Carbine, publisher of Ms magazine; Charlotte Curtis ‘50, associate editor of The New York Times; Lenore Hershey, editor of  The Ladies' Home Journal and Geraldine Rhoads, editor of Woman's Day, spoke on two Poynter Panels, one about "Women in the Profession of Journalism" and the other about "Women's Magazines and the Changing Image of Women."

The Poynter program was the gift of Nelson and Marion Knauss Poynter ‘46, publishers of The St. Petersburg Times, and was intended to inform students about the media.
