Director of the Knight Center for Specialized Journalism at the University of Maryland Carol Horner died last week in the District of Columbia.

The Washington Post quotes Knight Foundation Journalism Vice President Eric Newton:

 

"Under Carol Horner's leadership, the Knight Center in Specialized Journalism became the gold standard for training journalists to cover complex topics," said Eric Newton, vice president of the journalism program at the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. "Because of Carol's work, journalists all over America know how to cover difficult-to-handle topics -- everything from nuclear power to the military to the economy."
