The article on the 2011 Pulitzer Prizes (Almanac April 26, 2011) inadvertently omitted mentioning two additional finalists with Penn connections:

Stephanie McCurry, professor of history, was a finalist for the History Pulitzer for her book, Confederate Reckoning: Power and Politics in the Civil War South (Harvard University Press) which the Pulitzer website called “an insightful work analyzing the experience of disenfranchised white women and black slaves who were left when Confederate soldiers headed for the battlefield.”

Graduate music alum Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon was a Music Finalist for Comala, a recording released in June, 2010 by Bridge Records, described on the Pulitzer website as “an ambitious cantata that translates into music an influential work of Latin American literature, giving voice to two cultures that intersect within the term America.”
