Extended Bio Profile:
Ms. Ludwig's career as a newspaper reporter, editor and social activist has lasted over 68 years, and she has no plans to retire. She has published her writing in alternative weeklies for about 40 years. One of her 1967 stories about a local hospital caused her to be fired from the Clearwater Sun, but led to a federal investigation and the hospital in question was found to have misused funds designated for community service. In 1993, Ms. Ludwig was among the founders of the Civic Media Committee, a non-corporate media reading library devoted to material not covered, or inadequately covered, by mainstream media. In the area of education reform, one of the most important changes that Ms. Ludwig believes is needed is for people who are not members of minority groups to make the personal acquaintance of more people who are, and gain greater knowledge of their history.
