The Evanstonian

Adam Marquardt, In-Depth Editor

My name is Adam Marquardt and I’m a senior at ETHS. This is my second year writing opinion for the Evanstonian, and have also done some work in features this year. I am responsible for the controversial feature piece “Six Questions for a Drug Dealer” which was censored earlier this year. Journalism has given me the opportunity to write about politics in and outside of Evanston from a variety of angles which will serve me in future endeavors. I am the captain of Evanston’s policy debate team and hope to pursue a career in academic writing.

Punching Nazis
