Peter Cox received his master's in journalism from Columbia University in New York in May. He graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn. in 2002 with a degree in English and Political Science. He spent the past four years working at three daily papers in Minnesota -- the Albert Lea Tribune, the West Central Tribune and the St. Cloud Times -- covering everything from turtle races to the role of National Guardsmen in rebuilding Kosovo. His work has been published in the Philadelphia Daily News, the Orlando Sentinel, the Austin American-Statesman, the Lexington Herald-Leader, the Times-Picayune, the Columbus Dispatch, the St. Louis Post Dispatch and The Oregonian.

This summer, he reported with James Angelos and Mary-Catherine Brouder on a series of stories about refugees changing the religious landscape of Utica, N.Y. and, a story about Mandaeans, an ancient religion endangered by the war in Iraq.
