"Boston Globe" Cites Elizabeth Warren as Bostonian of the Year

The newspaper recognizes the financial watchdog, and picks American Repertory Theatre's Diane Paulus as a runner-up.

Citing her role as chair of the congressional oversight panel that monitors the Troubled Asset Relief Program--the federal mechanism for shoring up troubled banks and other financial institutions--the Boston Globe Magazine named Gottlieb professor of law Elizabeth Warren the Bostonian of the Year.

See here for Warren's Harvard Magazine articles on bankruptcy and the middle class, and on a proposed financial-products safety commission--the latter an element in congressional proposals for financial-reform legislation.

American Repertory Theatre artistic director Diane Paulus was one of the Globe's runners-up. Harvard Magazine profiled her in the November-December 2009 issue.
