Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, who won the International Reporting Pulitzer Prize for his work on the My Lai Massacre during the Vietnam War, was the featured speaker for the second annual Distinguished Speakers Series on October 15. Hersh regularly contributes articles about national security, government and military issues to “The New Yorker” and received the 2004 George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting. Hersh has written eight books, including “The Price of Power,” for which he won the National Book Award, and “Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib.”
The Distinguished Speaker Series was founded by Art Levine, professor of ethics and legal studies in the College of Business Administration, and Vice President Doug Robinson to raise money for the university’s general scholarship fund.
