Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist to Speak at UNH

David Shribman

David Shribman, the executive editor and vice president of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, will deliver the College of Liberal Arts John T. Holden Lecture, “The New Architecture of American Politics,” on Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. in 115 Murkland Hall on UNH’s Durham campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

The executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and a regular panelist on “Washington Week in Review” and “Meet the Press,” Shribman has shared his political insights for over thirty years. For the Boston Globe he served as Washington Bureau Chief, as well as assistant managing editor and columnist. For the Wall Street Journal, he was a national political correspondent. And for The New York Times, his beat was Congress and national politics. A native of Salem, Massachusetts, he began his career at the Buffalo Evening News, where he worked his way from covering City Hall to Capitol Hill. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1995 for his analytical reporting on Washington and the American political scene.

David Shribman has earned four honorary degrees, served on the selection committee of the JFK Library’s Profiles of Courage Award, and lectured and taught courses at universities across the country.

The Holden Lecture is supported by the John T. Holden Memorial Fund in the College of Liberal Arts, which was established in 1995 in memory of John Holden, one of the university’s outstanding teachers of political science. The fund is dedicated to bringing signal scholars in the social sciences to UNH.

This lecture is part of Celebrate 150: The Campaign for UNH, celebrating 150 years of success at UNH and setting a bold course for the next 150 years. Learn more.
