Established in 1917 by publisher Joseph Pulitzer, the Pulitzer Prize is now awarded in 21 categories, including investigative reporting, news photography, drama, poetry, music, and others. It continues to be the most coveted honor in journalism. Yet while many publications have been written on the topic of the Pulitzer Prizes, none has provided basic factual information on all of the winners. This new reference tool profiles each of the more than 1,100 individuals who have received this honor from 1917 through 1998. Entries include the winner's name, year and category for the Pulitzer Prize(s) won, birthdate, family, education, career summary, other awards won, list of selected works, and where to locate additional information. Several entries also include photos of the winner.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The main reference question this book answers--"Who won the Pulitzer Prize for X in year Y?"--can now be answered by using the Pulitzer web site at www.pulitzer.org. The web site is superior to the book for information from 1995 to the present because it provides not only information on the prize winners but also the names of the other finalists, the names of the jurors, and, significantly, links to the full text of the prize-winning articles. For prizes awarded from 1917 to 1995, however, the web site provides only the name of the prize winner and a brief explanation, whereas this book provides detailed biographical information, including the winner's dates, education, career, selected works, other awards, references, and commentary. Frugal libraries can use the web site to obtain a name and then rely on standard biographical sources for the biography, but comprehensive collections and news libraries will want to use both the book and the web site to obtain the most complete information. Brennan is currently a freelance information specialist, while Clarage teaches library administration at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.--Marc Meola, Temple Univ. Lib., Philadelphia Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Lists 1,175 Pulitzer prize winners for 39 different categories.
