Paul Anderson - 2010

Paul Y. Anderson began his work in St. Louis as a reporter for the Post-Dispatch in 1914, and won a Pulitzer in 1929 for his stories on the Teapot Dome scandal of the Harding administration. Early in his career, Anderson received a commendation from Congress for his stories on race riots in St. Louis. He went to work for the Star-Times in 1937, where he was assigned to the Washington bureau. Although haunted by his own inner demons, Anderson became known during his short career as one of the greatest crusading reporters of his generation.
