Finding lists of people in journalism

For more curated lists, try skimming the Pulitzer Prize categories lists and search for other journalism awards listed in the Encyclopedia of Journalism appendix.  See also the Encyclopedia of Journalism articles linked below on specific journalistic roles:  each of these articles contains a list of notable people for the role. 

Wikipedia is a good resource for simply finding the names of people in the profession.  Below are links to two Wikipedia category pages that can be helpful.  Be aware that there may be far less biographical information available about some of these people.

Obviously, if you have the name of a specific person, you can enter their name into MARQCAT as a subject search to see what we have.

But if you want to browse and see what biographies and autobiographies we have, try the links to searches below.
