Memorial service planned Sunday for Richard Ben Cramer

JournalismMartin O'MalleyPulitzer Prize Awards

A memorial service for Richard Ben Cramer, 62, a former Baltimore Sun reporter, Pulitzer Prize-winning foreign correspondent and acclaimed biographer who died Jan. 7, will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at Washington College's Gibson Center for the Arts in Chestertown.

Gov. Martin O'Malley said Sunday he planned to attend the service, and had also ordered the State House flag in Annapolis to be flown at half mast.

The governor called Mr. Cramer "a great American, great Marylander and a dear friend," and said in a statement that, “Richard's work as a gifted writer and deeply principled journalist made our republic a better place; made us a stronger, more compassionate, and more understanding people.

“We have lost one of the best political journalists of our times," O'Mallley said. "We have also lost a great patriot, and one of the kindest souls God ever created.”

For more information on the service, call Laura Johnston Wilson at 410-778-7849, or email Adam Goodheart at agoodheart2@washcoll.edu.
