Tip of the hat to Dave Fahrenthold!

Harvard, the Crimson, and my family are all proud that Dave Fahrenthold '00 of the Washington Post has just been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, for his work investigating Donald Trump's charitable donations and for breaking the "Access Hollywood" video story. Dave is married to my daughter Elizabeth (see family photo). Before he met her, he covered me for the Crimson while I was dean. See this early example of his thorough, fair-minded work covering an uncooperative subject!

  2. Congratulations to your illustrious son-in-law.

    For many of us, it wasn't just the reporting that was so impressive. His use of a humble paper notebook drove home just how painstaking and human the job is — an important reminder of how much we need journalists.
