1917 Pulitzer Prize

Pulitzer Prizes were first presented in 1917. There were initially four categories; others that had been specified in Joseph Pulitzer's bequest were phased in over the next few years. The winners were selected by the trustees of Columbia University. The first Pulitzer Prize winner, French Ambassador Jean Jules Jusserand, who had written the best book about American history, won $2,000. Herbert Bayard Swope won a $1,000 prize for reporting.[1]
