BRIEF NOTES on GEORGE F. WILL *68 

George F. Will is one of the most widely read writers in the world. With over 450
newspapers, his biweekly Newsweek column, and his appearances as an ABC
News political commentator, he may be the most influential writer in America.

AWARDS
In 1977, he won the Pulitzer Prize for his newspaper columns,
and garnered awards for his Newsweek columns, including a
finalist citation in the "Essays and Criticism" category of the 1979
National Magazine Awards competition.  He also received a 1978
National Headliners Award for his "consistently outstanding special
features columns" in Newsweek. A column on New York City's
finances earned him a 1980 Silurian Award for Editorial Writing.
Then in January 1985, The Washington Journalism Review named
George Will the "Best Writer, Any Subject."

More recently, he was named among the 25 most influential
Washington journalists
by the National Journal in 1997.

EARLY YEARS
The future Pulitzer-Prize winning author and columnist graduated
from Trinity College (in Hartford, CT) and continued his studies at
both Oxford's Magdalen College and at Princeton.  At Princeton,
George Will earned both an M.A. and a Ph.D. in politics. His 1968
Ph.D. thesis, "Beyond the Reach of Majorities: Closed Questions
in the Open Society," was a stepping stone to his later work.

Mr. Will later taught at James Madison College (Michigan State), at
the University of Toronto and Harvard (1990s).  During 1970-72,
he served on the staff of Senator Gordon Allott (R-CO).

Beginning as an editor for the National Review (1972-78), he joined
the Washington Post Writers Group in 1979, writing a syndicated
twice-weekly column, which became widely circulated among US
newspapers. In 1976, he became a contributing editor for Newsweek.
His columns appear in the Washington Post and Newsweek

His column is syndicated to 450 newspapers.

He has written two best-selling books on baseball, three books on
political philosophy, and an additional eleven compilations of his
columns for the Washington Post and Newsweek. He is equally
well known for his reviews and lectures.

As a commentator, he's been an analyst for ABC since the 1980s and
was a founding member of ABC's This Week with David Brinkley panel
(starting in 1981) -- which is now called This Week. Will was also a regular
panelist on TV's Agronsky & Company and on NBC's Meet the Press --
(which PCW visited twice during 2009-10).....

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE.
