Wednesday, May 6, 2020

Congratulations to The New Yorker's Ben Taub '14 for winning a Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing for his piece “Guantánamo’s Darkest Secret".  At Princeton, Taub was a philosophy major who displayed significant interest in and inclination towards a career in journalism, demonstrated by his photo exhibit from the frontlines of the war against ISIS on the Turkey/Syrian border, as well as in his participation in journalism classes offered through the Humanities Council's Journalism program. Taub went on to pursue his Master's in Journalism from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, after which he began writing for The New Yorker.
