The Ann M. Sperber Biography Award

2013 Sperber Prize Goes to Walter Cronkite Biography

The Department of Communications and Media Studies Congratulates the 2013 winner of the Annual Ann M. Sperber Biography Award, Douglas Brinkley for his fine book, Cronkite.

The Sperber Prize is given in honor of Ann M. Sperber, the author of the excellent biography of Edward R. Murrow, titled, Murrow: His Life and Times. Through the generous support of Ann’s mother Lisa the award was established to promote and encourage other fine biographical works that focus on a media professional. We believe that Ann’s biography of Murrow set an example for meticulous research and finely crafted writing in the filed of biography writing. The book received numerous awards and was a finalist in 1987 for the Pulitzer Prize.
