Globe loses books editor to Harvard

Jim Concannon--who'll be news editor in Harvard's public-affairs office--takes a great deal of institutional knowledge with him. Here's the press release from deputy managaing editor of features Doug Most:


Those of you who know Jim Concannon know they don't come more selfless. In
every role he's had here, and there have been many, it's always been about
what's best for the Globe. That's why it's so hard to announce that Jim is
leaving us to be the news editor over in Harvard's public affairs office.

Jim has been the Books editor here for the last 7 years, the last step of
many. Before that he was the National editor during much of the Clinton
administration, and he's also worn hats that said Sunday Focus editor,
deputy Foreign editor, Living editor, National editor, and interim Op-ed
editor. As Books editor, he managed the Sunday section, the daily reviews,
the Books site on, and its blog.

Be sure and wish him well, but know that he's not going far, as my hunch is
that the small college he's joining across the river will still be the
occasional subject of our coverage (just a hunch).

Sendoff plans TBD.
