Richard Reeves, senior lecturer at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California, is an author and syndicated columnist whose column has appeared in more than 100 newspapers since 1979. He has received dozens of awards for his work in print, television and film.

Educated as a mechanical engineer, Richard Reeves began his career in journalism at the age of 23, founding the Phillipsburg Free Press in Phillipsburg, N.J. He has been a correspondent for the Newark Evening News and the New York Herald Tribune and was the chief political correspondent of The New York Times. He has also written for numerous other publications, becoming national editor and columnist for Esquire and New York Magazine along the way. Named a “literary lion” by the New York Public Library, Reeves has won a number of print journalism awards and has been a Pulitzer Prize finalist and juror.

In 1975, Reeves published his first book, “A Ford, not a Lincoln.” His “President Kennedy: Profile of Power” is now considered the authoritative work on the 35th president, has won several national awards and was named the Best Non-Fiction Book of 1993 by Time and Book of the Year by Washington Monthly.

Reeves has also worked extensively on television and in film. He was chief correspondent on “Frontline.” He has made six television films and won all of television’s major documentary awards: the Emmy for “Lights, Camera . . . Politics!” for ABC News; the Columbia-DuPont Award for “Struggle for Birmingham” for PBS; and the George Foster Peabody Award for “Red Star over Khyber” for PBS. He has also appeared in two feature films, “Dave” and “Seabiscuit.”

In 1998, he won the Carey McWilliams Award of the American Political Science Association for distinguished contributions to the understanding of American politics. He was the Goldman Lecturer on American Civilization and Government at the Library of Congress that year; the lectures were published by Harvard University Press under the title What the People Know: Freedom and the Press.

His latest book, “Daring Young Men,” a history of the Berlin Airlift, was published by Simon and Schuster in 2010.
