About Nicholas D. Kristof

Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, are the first married couple to win a Pulitzer Prize in journalism for their coverage of China as "New York Times" correspondents. They received the 2009 Dayton Literary Peace Prize for Lifetime Achievement and many other prizes including the George Polk and Overseas Press Club awards. Mr. Kristof won a second Pulitzer in 2006, for his graphic, deeply reported columns that, at personal risk, focused attention on genocide in Darfur. He has also served as bureau chief in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Tokyo, and as associate managing editor. Ms. WuDunn, now a business executive, worked at "The New York Times," on both the business and news sides. She has been a foreign correspondent in Asia, a business editor and a television anchor. She is the first Asian-American to receive a Pulitzer Prize. They live near New York City."
