Eugene L. Meyer Wins Gold Award for Travel Column

10/25/2007 7:18:00 AM

by Eugene L. Meyer

Maryland Life writer is cited for "fascinating" columns and "distinctive voice" by International Regional Magazine Association.

Eugene L. Meyer has received the Gold Award for best column from the International Regional Magazine Association.

The award, for Meyer's "Hidden Maryland" column in Maryland Life Magazine, was presented at IRMA's annual conference in October. 

In commenting on Meyer's column, Hilary Davidson, one of the judges, called it: "fascinating, with a distinctive voice."

IRMA is composed of regional and state magazines in the United States and Canada. It includes such prestigious and long-established publications as Arizona Highway and Down East. Maryland Life, which is only three years old, received its first awards this year at the conference in Lone Wolf, Okla.

Magazines were invited to submit three columns. Meyer's entries told about Maryland's only private toll bridge, over the Potomac River in Oldtown; a tiny hamlet called Harney near the Pennsylvania border; and a Confederate memorial and cemetery revealing when suburban Montgomery County, adjoining Washington, DC, "wore grey."

"Our readers really enjoy Gene Meyer's columns, and we're delighted that his work was recognized through this esteemed body," said Dan Patrell, President of Great State Publishing and Co-Publisher and Editor of Maryland Life. "Every issue, Gene takes us to a part of Maryland that many don't know. It's the sense of discovery, which he passes on to every reader, that makes his column a special part of every issue of Maryland Life."

Meyer is a former longtime Washington Post reporter and editor who now freelances for many publications in addition to Maryland Life, including the New York Times, Bethesda Magazine, Washingtonian, and RISMedia Real Estate.  He won the Washington Indepedent Writers top award for reported non-fiction in 2006 for articles on Washington D.C.'s Potomac River waterfront (for Washingtonian) and on the "Terrapin King" of turn-of-the-last century Crisfield, Maryland (for Chesapeake Bay Magazine).
