This article reports on the J. Anthony Lukas Prize Project Awards received by Evan Wright, Richard Steven Street, and Joan Quigley at a ceremony held at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism on May 3, 2005. Each year the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and the Nieman Foundation honor three exceptional works of nonfiction that exemplify literary grace, commitment to serious research, and social concern. Wright received the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize for his book, Generation Kill: Devil Dogs, Iceman, Captain America, and the New Face of American War. Street won the Mark Lynton History Prize for his book, Beasts of the Field: A Narrative History of California Farm Workers, 1769-1913. Quigley received the J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award for Home Fires, a book on the mining town of Centralia, Pennsylvania, and the fire that has been burning beneath the town for decades. The J. Anthony Lukas Prize Project Awards, established in 1998, honor and continue the work that distinguished the career of journalist and author J. Anthony Lukas, a member of the 1969 Nieman class. The 2005 submissions totaled 360, the largest ever in the history of the awards.
