It is the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prize awards! The Pulitzer Prize awards began in 1917 recognizing excellence in journalism, letters and education. Joseph Pulitzer was a powerhouse newspaper publisher, fiercely protective of American journalism and in his will made way for the Pulitzer Prize award to expand and continue. The Pulitzers have since expanded to giving out 21 awards in areas including the arts such as photography, music, and poetry. These awards are some of the most recognized and distinguished awards for the humanities.

Humanities E-Book has over 30 titles that received the Pulitzer Prize in History. These titles represent some of the best in HEB’s collection, though they do not show the breadth of awards the rest of the collection has received. We at HEB put together a list to showcase the titles that have Pulitzer Prize awards that you can easily browse through. See the gallery for selections from the list or the table below to explore the complete list of Pulitzer Prize titles!
