Papers of Peter Kihss, an award-winning reporter who wrote for the New York Times for thirty out of the nearly fifty years of his career. His career began in 1933 as a reporter for the Associated Press after his graduation from Columbia University. He was a Pulitzer scholar and part-time correspondent for the Times in Uruguay and Argentina for a year, and then worked for several news organizations before joining the Times in 1952 as a general reporter. In 1984, the Fund for the City of New York established the Peter Kihss Award for outstanding reporting on New York City government and named Kihss the first recipient.
