Loomis, who worked at Fortune for 60 years before her retirement in 2014 at the age of 85, helped define the magazine and set the standard for excellence in business journalism. She helped launch the very first iteration of the Fortune 500 list in 1955 and is credited with having coined the term “hedge fund” in 1966.
Loomis received multiple awards and honors for her editing and writing. Among those are four lifetime achievement awards: the Women’s Economic Round Table award in 2000 for print journalists, of which she was the first recipient; Time Inc.’s Henry R. Luce Award in 2001; and SABEW’s Distinguished Achievement Award and the Gerald Loeb Award, both in 2006.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri in 1951.
