Erin Arvedlund of Pensions & Investments profiles Christine Williamson, who has spent 35 years at the publication, where she started as directory coordinator of surveys.

Arvedlund writes, “To avoid coming to the office on Saturdays and Sundays to work on her ‘gigantic’ desktop computer, P&I rented what was called a portable computer, ‘but it was as large as a big sewing machine and weighed about 15 pounds. Lugging it to and from the office on public transportation was truly a labor of need, but not of love,’ Ms. Williamson said.

“A year or two later, she asked then-editor Michael Clowes if she could work as a reporter.

“‘He said I could do so … if I moved to New York, which I couldn’t do for family reasons. Michael eventually gave in, let me stay in Chicago, and I was thrilled to cover money managers, asset owners and occasionally, politicians.’

“After a stint as one of P&I’s first defined contribution plan reporters, she was assigned to cover hedge funds and has written about ‘that fascinating part of the investment industry for many years.'”
