Short biography
Therese Yewell is an eleventh-generation native of Prince George's County, Maryland, and a descendant of Leonard Calvert, the first colonial governor of Maryland. She studied communications at the University of Denver and journalism and political science at Boston University. Interested in politics, public policy, and writing, she started as a receptionist in a U.S. Congressman's office and in less than four years was a staff advisor on appropriations for U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WVa). She decided to live internationally and spent two years in Mexico City and five in Athens, Greece. In Athens, she worked as a foreign correspondent for US and British publications. Returning to Maryland in 1989, she worked for two years in the office of Prince George's County Executive Parris Glendening, where she was editor/writer of Prince George's County Today, a bimonthly tabloid newspaper featuring information about community events and county services and programs. She also developed and coordinated a training program in local government for delegations of public officials and private citizens from former East Bloc countries. She then worked for the World Trade Center Institute in Baltimore. [adapted from: Therese C. Yewell, Women of Achievement in Prince George's County, Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission, 1994, p. 336]
