Pulitzer Jurors Named

January 9, 1986

NEW YORK (AP) _ The appointment of 65 editors and news executives as Pulitzer Prize nominating jurors was announced Wednesday by Columbia University President Michael I. Sovern.

The jurors will pass initial judgment on entries for the journalism awards based on work published in 1985.

The Pulitzer Prizes are awarded annually by Columbia on the recommendation of the Pulitzer Prize Board. Pulitzer juries screen all entries and nominate some for the board’s particular consideration.

The jurors, each of whom is assigned to one of the 14 Pulitzer categories, are told that it is not their job to express any order of preference among their nominees, and that their reports are for the information of the Pulitzer board, which chooses the winners.

The board can give a Pulitzer Prize to a jury nominee or to an entry not nominated by the jury, or it can award no prize at all.

The jurors are Jean Adelsman, managing editor, The Daily Breeze, Torrance, Calif.; J.D. Alexander, managing editor, The San Diego Union; Kent Bernhard, executive editor, Detroit Free Press; Louis D.
