Alum earns Pulitzer nomination

May 15, 2009

Alum Matt Wuerker ‘79 was one of three finalists for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning. Wuerker, a political cartoonist and illustrator for the Politico, has appeared in numerous newspapers statewide for the past 25 years. On his natural attraction to political cartoons, Wuerker said, “It’s a small niche, this place where political opinion and art get to mix in the editorial pages of the nation’s newspapers. Where else do you get to be a combination of Dr. Seuss and Noam Chomsky?”
