Interviewing Ebola survivors,(Peter Busamoke photo)

Andrew Maykuth is the Philadelphia Inquirer's correspondent at large. I assembled this Web site when I was the Inquirer's correspondent in Africa from 1996 to 2002. It was a useful place to refer wary sources who confused my publication with a certain infamous supermarket tabloid. My story: I was raised in Columbus, Ohio, and graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I worked for a couple of years at the Columbia (Mo.) Daily Tribune before I went to Philadelphia in 1982. I was covering local news when The Inquirer sent me on my first international assignment to Nicaragua in 1985. Since then, I have traveled to 49 countries in Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and south Asia on Inquirer assignments. I also spent four years as the Inquirer's New York correspondent. My work has been recognized by The Overseas Press Club, the Population Institute’s Global Media Awards, Lincoln University’s Unity Awards, the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association and The National Association of Black Journalists. I was a John S. Knight journalism fellow at Stanford University in 2002. home page
