Author: perkinsk

Terry Anderson (1974) joined the Associated Press and worked in Asia and Africa before being assigned to Lebanon as the chief Mideast correspondent in 1982. In 1985 he was taken hostage and held for nearly 7 years, becoming the longest held of those abducted during Lebanon’s civil war. Anderson later taught courses at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, and wrote Den of Lions, a book about his captivity.
