Abstract

STILL thirtysomething but nearing its 40th year, American Medical News welcomes its 7th editor this week. She is Kathryn Trombatore, who moves to Chicago from Texas Medical Association headquarters in Austin, where she directed the Division of Communication. As the first editor since its founder not to come out of the ranks of American Medical News, she assumes responsibilities previously undertaken by a succession of Kansas newspapermen followed by the paper's first woman editor (who also was the first AM News editor to hold an AMA vice presidency). Most, if not all, encountered major challenges during their editorships. Yet Trombatore's 6 predecessors apparently are a hardy breed, relocated from coast to coast and remaining active in a variety of pursuits. Trombatore also will be directing a staff many of whose alumni have moved on-quietly or otherwise—to major editorial, public relations, law, teaching, or other positions.
