Biography

Haynes Johnson is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, a best selling author, and a television commentator. He has reported on virtually every major national and international news event in the past four decades, including the activities of every President from Dwight D. Eisenhower to Bill Clinton. Until recently, Haynes Johnson was associated with the Washington Post, which he joined in 1969, where he served as a national reporter, assistant managing editor, and as a national affairs columnist. He appears regularly on the PBS-TV program Washington Week in Review and The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.

In 1966 Haynes Johnson won the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished national reporting of the civil rights struggle in Selma, Alabama. The award marked the first time in Pulitzer Prize history that a father and son both received awards for reporting; his father, Malcolm Johnson, won in 1949 for his New York Sun series "Crime on the Waterfront," which formed the basis for the Academy Award-winning film, On the Waterfront.

After serving for three years in the Korean War as a first lieutenant in artillery, Haynes Johnson began his newspaper career in 1956 as a reporter for the Wilmington News-Journal. The following year he joined the staff of the Washington Star and for twelve years served that paper as city reporter, copyeditor, night city editor, national reporter, and special assignment reporter in the U.S. and around the world.

Haynes Johnson, who holds a master's degree in American History from the University of Wisconsin, has twice been appointed the Ferris Professor of Journalism and Public Affairs at Princeton University. He has also been a Regents Lecturer at the University of California at Berkeley and a Guest Scholar at the Brookings Institution.

Haynes Johnson is the author of eleven books, including three national bestsellers: Sleepwalking Through History, The Bay of Pigs, and The Landing, a spy thriller set in World War II-era Washington and Johnson's first novel. His other nonfiction works include Divided We Fall, Dusk at the Mountain, Fulbright: The Dissenter, Lyndon, The Working White House, and In the Absence of Power: Governing America.
