Hide Profile

Pulitzer, Joseph, Jr. or Pulitzer, Joseph, II (21 March 1885–30 March 1955), editor and publisher, was born in New York City, the son of Joseph Pulitzer, founder of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and editor-publisher-owner of the New York World, and Kate Davis. Pulitzer took the reigns of the Post-Dispatch in 1911 and ran it for the next 43 years. Under his oversight, the paper and its staffers acquired 11 Pulitzer Prizes. A perfectionist, he personally supervised every department of the paper, but his heart was in the editorial page. The Post was also a huge financial success. He eliminated competition from the Star-Times by purchasing the paper. When he turned 60, Pulitzer threw a huge party and invited all the paper’s employees - 1,152 people - and about 100 former employees.
