Professors Matthew Killmeier and Jerry LaSala were recently awarded a Maine Humanities Pulitzer Prize Centennial Campfires Initiative Project Grant with matching funds from USM Provost Uzzi’s office. The funds were used to bring Ralph Blumenthal, former New York Times investigative reporter to campus for a lecture and student workshop. Blumenthal and team won a Pulitzer for reporting on the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, which was the subject of his talk on Thursday, April 14, 2016, in Portland.
