The Pulitzer Prizes
The Pulitzer Prizes, which are administered at Columbia University, were established by Joseph Pulitzer, a Hungarian-American journalist and newspaper publisher, who left money to Columbia U. upon his death in 1911. A portion of his bequest was used to found the School of Journalism in 1912 and establish the Pulitzer Prizes, which were first awarded in 1917.
The importance of the Pulitzer Prizes cannot be underestimated. The totality of the Pulitzers, news and arts, has had an immeasurable impact on the American sensibility and beyond over the past 100 years.
