Anthony Lewis is often credited with creating the field of legal journalism. He won his first Pulitzer Prize in 1955 for covering the case of a civilian employee of the U.S. Navy who was unfairly dismissed as a security risk. His second Pulitzer came several years later for his work in covering the Supreme Court. "For more than four decades, from Birmingham to Israel to Bosnia to welfare reform," writer James Carroll has said, "Lewis has embodied the prophetic function of the press in a free society."
