Graduate Student with Interest in Newspaper History
Needed to Help with Research for a Book on Pulitzer Prizes
This exciting book project (U. of Missouri Press) presents All the President’s Men-style case studies of winners of the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, woven into a history of the 88 years of Pulitzer “gold medals.”
Work involves assembling databases, using the same techniques often employed by the investigative teams that are the subjects of the book. Can be done on your own time over about three months (approximately December to February), on campus at Butler Rare Manuscripts Library, Columbia’s Pulitzer microfilm archives, and the offices of the Pulitzer Prizes in the Journalism Building.
Author is a Boston-based former Wall Street Journal reporter and editor—now a magazine editor with The Economist Group—who is being assisted by St. Petersburg, Fla.-based Poynter Institute. Stipend of $500 to $1,000 available, depending on time dedicated to the project. Please send name, two references, contact information (for you and them), a brief bio, and a sample of your writing to:
