The Communication department at Stevenson University welcomes local author Jack Gilden to the faculty. His first book was Collision of Wills: Johnny Unitas, Don Shula, and the Rise of the Modern NFL (2018). He has also recently signed a contract with the University of Nebraska Press to publish a new book about the racehorse, Spectacular Bid.
According to his publisher, “Gilden’s editorials, columns, and articles have appeared in Orioles Magazine, the Baltimore Sun, the Evening Sun, Chesapeake Life, Style magazine and the Baltimore Jewish Times. He has written about the anti-Semitism of H.L. Mencken, the literary life of Bernard Malamud, the lost legend of “Swish” Nicholson, Joe Louis as civil rights hero, and the profane genius of Earl Weaver. He wrote the Orioles 40th Anniversary Video, narrated by the legendary Jim McKay.”
