Pulitzer Prizes by Year

Joseph Pulitzer
Although the Pulitzer Prizes were provided for in the will of newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer--who died in 1911--the first prizes were not awarded until 1917. In that year only two prizes were given in the Letters and Drama categories; others were added sporadically in the first few years (and the Nonfiction category wasn't added until 1962).

Here, then, are the Prizes organized by year.
