University of Oklahoma Grad Joins the New York Times

Keep an eye on Bryan Scott Dugan. We have a feeling this freshly-minted journalism grad is going places.

Along with helping edit Mental Floss magazine, Dugan is also as of July 31 full-time with the New York Times. But he’s not quite in the big city yet. Instead, per a nice write-up on, this member of the Native American Journalists Association and Cherokee Nation citizen is getting his feet wet in the Sunshine State:

Dugan is working at the newspaper’s editing center in Gainesville, Florida, which serves as an area for copy editors to prepare stories for the paper’s national and international editions and other newspapers that subscribe to receive the New York Times articles.

Dugan is a copy editor for the wire service and a designer for international versions of the newspaper.

Dugan was a VVM digital media fellow at the Phoenix New Times and interned last summer with the Dow Jones News Fund. During his time at the University of Oklahoma, he was also the EIC one year for the school’s award-winning Sooner yearbook. Congrats to him on this exciting first career step.
