Information

Award Description
From the New York University journalism department and created at the end of the century, this list is an echo of the key historical events across the chronology of the 20th century. History students and faculty can use this list to gain period insight into the breaking news stories of the day. Journalism students can learn about the history of their field, discover influential journalists, and gain knowledge of writing and reporting styles. According to an article in the New York Times, the NYU list is compiled by 36 judges and focuses on craftsmanship more than events. For further study, check out the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at New York University list of 100 Outstanding Journalists in the United States in the Past 100 Years.
