Ben Bradlee, Jr.’s position as The Boston Globe’s Deputy Managing Editor put him at the helm of its 2003 Pulitzer Prize winning team investigation into the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston’s repeated cover-ups of sexual abuse of children by priests. Most of Bradlee’s life-long career in journalism was at The Boston Globe, where he worked as a reporter and editor from 1979-2004. In 2013 Bradlee published his biography of Boston Red Sox icon Ted Williams, an effort which took ten years of in-depth research. Bradlee will discuss the evolving importance of newspapers and investigative journalism.
