Endowed by John R. MacArthur. Publisher of Harper’s, and friends, this Harpers Magazine scholarship is awarded by the Overseas Press Club which says:. “In a career that spanned more than 65 years, Stone, a veteran Washington reporter, is best known for publishing I.F. Stone's Weekly from 1953 to 1971, a newsletter that printed the news that was overlooked in the mainstream press. His work almost single-handedly revived investigative reporting. He is remembered as tough-minded...a tireless examiner of public records, a hectoring critic of public officials, and a pugnacious advocate of civil liberties, peace and truth.”
Winners of the I.F. Stone Award of the Overseas Press Club receive a stipend of $2,000. What follows are some excerpts from the OPC website about some recent winners of the award. See http://www.overseaspressclubfoundation.org/winners.html and see this page on our site for some recent winners.
