"Robby" Robinson, Editor-at-Large for The Boston Globe and leader of the newspaper's 2003 Pulitzer Prize-winning Spotlight Team.

About the Living History Award Dinner

Plimoth Plantation's inaugural Living History Award reflects the Museum's goal of bringing to life universal human experiences through the power of storytelling. This award recognizes outstanding individuals whose contributions to American life and history — whether through their work in education, journalism, philanthropy, public service, art or storytelling — serve to make a positive difference in the world.
