Biographical or historical data
Cary Packard Stiff was born in Grand Rapids, Mich. in 1937. He received a B.A. in English from Dartmouth College and a M.S. from the Columbia University School of Journalism in 1964. While attending graduate school, Stiff taught at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kan. and at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn. After graduation, he was hired as a general assignment reporter for the Denver Post newspaper. He worked for the Post for nine years before he and his wife: the journalist Carol Wilcox founded the Clear Creek Courant newspaper in Georgetown, Colo. in 1973. The paper later moved to Idaho Springs, Colo. The couple sold the Clear Creek Courant in 1999 and as of 2009, the newspaper is still published as part of Landmark Community Newspapers, Inc. Stiff began writing a book about his experiences in the newspaper business before his death in Petersburg, Va., in 2008.
