GW Magazine Nabs a Top Honor

Magazine-CaseThe story of a GW alumnus’ adventures in recovering stolen masterpieces has won GW Magazine a top national award for journalism in alumni magazines.

The article, called Saving Grace, earlier this month received a gold award in the “Best Articles of the Year” category of annual honors given by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.

The award places the story among the top seven articles of 2011, selected out of nearly 200 stories from alumni magazines around the country vying for recognition.

The article, written by Danny Freedman, BA ’01, and Matt Lindsay, GWSB MBA ’07, chronicles the exploits of art detective Charles Hill, CCAS BA ’71. The British sleuth’s credits include the recovery of Edvard Munch’s haunting painting The Scream, stolen in Norway in 1994, as well as the return of vaunted works by Johannes Vermeer, Francisco de Goya and Titian.
