Tributes: Anthony Lewis

Monday, March 25, 2013

Anthony Lewis won his first Pulitzer Prize in 1955 for his reporting on the US government's loyalty program during the McCarthy era. He won his second in 1963 for his reporting on the Supreme Court for the New York Times. Lewis wrote for the Times until 2001, and his interest in justice continued to permeate his reporting and columns. He died recently at the age of 85. He was part of a panel discussion on censorship on the Leonard Lopate Show in 2008 and you can hear that conversation by clicking below.

Congratulations Lenny! I have been listening to you since 1987 and feel like you've contributed to the adult I am today. I loved you with Kate and Peggine, and I love you today! I am so happy that your great work has been acknowledged!
