ABSTRACT
The Louis Stark Collection, donated by the descendants of Louis Stark, has been added to the Bill Kovach Collection of Contemporary Journalism at Walter Lippmann House, the headquarters for the Nieman Foundation. Stark was a prominent labor journalist for The New York Times and other publications during the first half of the 1900s, most notably covering the coal and textile unions as well as union strife during World War II. In 1942 Stark won a Pulitzer Prize for telegraphic reporting for distinguished reporting of labor stories. Through the years several journalists have received funding as Louis Stark Memorial Fellows for their coverage of labor, workplace or related issues, including Jodi Rave and Louise Kiernan.
