Eugene L. Meyer Wins Award for Series on Clergy Sexual Abuse

6/29/2008 2:22:00 PM

by Eugene L. Meyer

Honor bestowed by American Jewish Press Association


Eugene L. Meyer has been named the recipient of a 2008 Simon Rockower Award For Excellence in Jewish Journalism for a five-part series on sexual abuses committed by Jewish clergy and how religious institutions have dealt with them. 
The series, “Reining in Abuse,” was published by JTA, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, in 2007 and was distributed to Jewish periodicals throughout the United States and beyond. 
The Rockower honor bestowed upon Meyer, along with collaborator Richard Greenberg, was the Boris Smolar Award for Excellence in Comprehensive Coverage or Investigative Reporting, named for a distinguished journalist, author and long-time editor-in-chief of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. The second-place award was presented in June in Washington, D.C. by the American Jewish Press Association.
This is Meyer’s fourth award since leaving The Washington Post in 2004 after a 34-year career there.  
In 2007, Meyer received the Gold Award for best column from the International Regional Magazine Association for his “Hidden Maryland” stories appearing in Maryland Life, a bi-monthly publication.
In 2006, Meyer received the top award for reported non-fiction from Washington Independent Writers for articles appearing in Washingtonian about the past, present and future of the city’s waterfront and in Chesapeake Bay Magazine about the turn-of-the-twentieth century “Terrapin King,” who cornered the market on turtles and then ran off with the nanny. It was the first time WIW had awarded the prize for two separate articles. In 2005, an article telling the story of Osborn Perry Anderson, an African American who was the sole survivor of the John Brown raid on Harpers Ferry, won a WIW honorable mention. 
Meyer writes for several publications, including The New York Times, Bethesda Magazine, RISMedia Real Estate, Maryland Life, Washingtonian, and Youth Today. He is also the author of two books, Maryland Lost and Found…Again (2000, 2003) and Chesapeake Country (1990, 2000).
