Yesterday's question of the day asked: When were the first Pulitzer prizes presented, and what were the original four categories? The year was 1917, and the categories were Editorial Writing, Reporting, Biography/Autobiography, and History. There were other categories that had been specified in Joseph Pulitzer's bequest, of course, but these were gradually phased in over the next few years!
Congratulations to Craig Pittman at the Tampa Bay Times for being the the first to answer correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Ken Walker, Geraldine Herbert, Edward Tenner, Jeanne Kirk and Amy Zipkin for answering one or both parts correctly!
Let's continue the same line of thought with today's question: Who were the first journalistic recipients that first year of Pulitzers?
