After Yale, Charles R. Eisendrath dropped out of law school to become a journalist. He remained one as Time correspondent in Washington, London and Paris, bureau chief in Buenos Aires and professor at the University of Michigan. Freelance work has appeared on NPR and in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, International Herald-Tribune and The Atlantic. At Michigan, Eisendrath founded Wallace House. It includes the Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellowships, one of the nation's leading mid-career professional programs, and The Livingston Awards, widely known as "the Pulitzer Prize for the young." Director of the program from 1986-2016, he raised a $60 million endowment to permanently support the Fellowships, and was founding director of the Prizes. In the culinary world, Eisendrath is known for founding Grillworks, Inc. and the patented device that helped re-introduce Americans to cooking over wood. The company is now owned by his eldest son, Ben. Mark, two years younger, is an artist. Eisendrath and his wife, Julia, live in Ann Arbor and East Jordan, Michigan.
