Pulitzer Prize Winners

All Pulitzer Prize Winners List 1918-2019

The Pulitzer Prize for Fiction is awarded each year to American authors of new books covering American life. The first Pulitzer prize was awarded in 1918. The award was initiated by Jewish journalist Joseph Pulitzer rewarding winners with a gold medal and $10,000 in cash. Pulitzer emigrated to the US in 1864 and became wealthy in the newspaper industry, founding the yellow press in the process.

Pulitzer strongly supported investigative reporting and exposed a bribe by the USA to the Panama Canal Company. This led to an indictment for libeling President Roosevelt which was later dismissed. Pulitzer bequeathed $2 million to fund a school of journalism at Columbia University and yearly prizes for literature along with journalism, music and drama. ADDucation’s Pulitzer prize winners for literature list shows the Pulitzer winner for each year, the author and title of their book.
