Event Details

Joseph Pulitzer: Founder of the Modern Newspaper

 

Instructor:  Rick Kistner

The Pulitzer Prizes are given annually to works considered the best in American Journalism, Arts and Letters. Joseph Pulitzer was a giant in the world of journalism, creating the format for newspaper publishing that exists to this very day. He rose to the top of his profession by insisting upon integrity but a major lapse in his personal philosophy troubled him until the day he died. He was a Hungarian immigrant whose prospects for success were almost non-existent. How he came to this country and founded an empire that dictated national opinion is a fascinating exemplar of The American Dream. We will explore Pulitzer’s background and the life shaping events that contributed to the establishment of those famous prizes.
