About The Association

The Hartford Courant Alumni Association and Refugee Camp was born out of the Wreck of the Tributanic, as it were, in the summer of 2008.

It is a refuge for all those journalists and other newspaper employees who lost or gave up their jobs in the July ‘08 staff reductions that have beset the company both before an after it actually began to list. It is also a gathering place for all former Courant alum, or eventual Courant alum.

It is intended as a place where former Courant employees can commiserate, share ideas and information, find each other and be found by those looking for the services of talented people who once created a great newspaper. It is not a site developed for the purpose of trashing the Tribune Company, though many might argue it deserves it. (There are, at least, some handy links that take care of the trashing.)

The Hartford Courant Alumni Association and Refugee Camp is administered by Paul E. Stern, a Courant veteran of 22 years, with the help of his technology support staff, Rebecca Stern. You may contact the elder Stern at psoddsocks@gmail.com.
