Charlotte U. Michaud (1898-1989) was a well-known Lewiston journalist. She began her career as a correspondent for LaPresse (Montréal), and continued to contribute to that publication until the 1960s. She joined the Lewiston Evening Journal in 1926, the first Franco woman to work for a Lewiston paper. She also wrote extensively for the Journal Magazine. In 1943, she moved to the Gannett Publishing Co. in Portland, working for all three Portland papers until her retirement in 1963. After retirement, she continued to write and edit for the Federation Feminine Franco-Américaine, and WCOU, and had her poetry published in an anthology titled Bagatelle. She was the first woman to serve on the Lewiston Historical Commission, and a supporter of the Centre D’Héritage.
