Washington, D.C., September 5, 2002—The Competitive Enterprise Institute is pleased to announce that Hugo Gurdon has joined the free market public policy group as the 2002-2003 Warren Brookes Journalism Fellow.

Gurdon comes to CEI after three years as managing editor of the National Post in Canada.  Before that, he spent 15 years with The Daily Telegraph, including posts as Washington Bureau Chief, Far East Bureau Chief, and Deputy Comment Editor for the London newspaper.

The one-year fellowship is named in honor of the late nationally syndicated columnist, Warren T. Brookes, who was known for his tradition of reporting from a sound scientific and economic perspective.  Through the program, established after Brookes’ death in 1991, CEI allows journalists the opportunity to improve their knowledge of environmental issues and free market economics.

Previous Warren Brookes Fellows have included Michelle Malkin, a syndicated columnist, Michael Fumento, author of Science Under Siege and The Fat of the Land, and Ron Bailey, science correspondent for Reason magazine and editor of the forthcoming book, Global Warming and Other Eco-Myths.

CEI is a non-profit, non-partisan public policy group dedicated to the principles of free enterprise and limited government.  For more information about CEI, please visit our website at www.cei.org.
