Joseph Pulitzer (1847-1911)
by Rajender Krishan Bookmark and Share

On June 26, 2016, while taking my cousin and his family on a tour to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, we happened to see the sculpture of Joseph Pulitzer and photographed it.

The plaque on the stand below the sculpture reads as follows:

As publisher of the New York World newspaper, this Hungarian immigrant conducted the editorial crusade that popularized the American Pedestal Fund Campaign.  His last will and testament established the Pulitzer Prizes for achievement in journalism, literature, music and art.

The Bender Foundation for the Bender Family, Howard and Sondra Bender. Phillip Ratner – Sculptor
