Biographical Notes

"Healy is 33 years old, and was hired from the Boston Globe, which is owned by the New York Times. Unlike Mayor Bloomberg, Healy remains a Red Sox fan. He is known as Patrick D. Healy, because there is already a Pat Healy on the Times, a 23-year-old in the real estate section who will henceforth be styled: Patrick O'Gilfoil Healy. (Sources: Los Angeles Times and interview)"—New York Civic, April 8, 2005.

According to an August 2003 American Society of Newspaper Editors article on Healy, who was then "higher education reporter" at the Boston Globe, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in English from Tufts University. His previous work experience included general assignment reporter with Foster’s Daily Democrat (Dover, NH), political reporter with the Union Leader (Manchester, NH), and as senior editor for politics with the Chronicle of Higher Education.
