Evelyn Boswell, writer/editor with the MSU News Service, will retire. Her last day in the office will be Thursday, July 2.
Boswell initially worked for MSU as a freelance writer and then an employee under temporary contract, but her official start date was Jan. 19, 1996.
Boswell graduated from Iowa State University in journalism and political science, then worked at various Iowa newspapers, including the Ottumwa Courier, a Lee Enterprises paper that covered nine very diverse counties. As regional editor, Bowell wrote about everything from triple murders and an Amish funeral to toenail jewelry and a couple whose last name was Wimp.
She then moved to Montana and covered eastern Montana for the Billings Gazette. Since she lived in Glendive, she sometimes flew to staff meetings. After moving to Bozeman, she began freelancing for MSU, then wrote under short-term contracts for Annette Trinity-Stevens in the VP for Research Office.
Faculty and staff are invited to stop by Culbertson Hall 429 on Wednesday, July 1, from 1-5 p.m. for cake and to wish Boswell a happy retirement.
