Editors and Staff

America Media is a work of the Society of Jesus of the United States and Canada. Jesuits have served on the staff of our flagship magazine since its founding in 1909. In 1999, Patricia Kossmann became the first layperson to serve as a fulltime member of the editorial board. Today, the majority of America Media’s editors and staff are laypeople.
