Editors and Staff

America Media is a work of the Society of Jesus of Canada and the United States. 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 full-time member of the editorial board. Today, the majority of America Media’s editors and staff are laypeople.
