Ron Lovell's picture

Ron Lovell

Ron Lovell has spent his entire career either writing or teaching others to write. As early as junior high school, he was always involved in journalism, editing the school paper in his first such class. At Santa Monica High School in California, he started on the school newspaper as a junior and was chosen editor in his senior year. In college at UCLA, he had enough trouble keeping up with classes that he chose not to try out for the newspaper. In graduate school there in 1960, he wrote for a number of Department of Journalism publications. Both his B.A. degree in political science (1959) and his M.S. in journalism (1961) came from UCLA.
