Robert Caro, NF ’66
Journalist, Author, Biographer
I had this little office in Lowell House and I really loved to go there in the evenings. The first couple of times I was like, ‘What am I going to do here? I have nothing to do here,’ and then soon it made me sit down and think. One of things I was thinking about was Robert Moses and urban political power and how I would need to do a book to explain. And it took a lot of nights to think that through. That’s really one of the things the Nieman year did for me.”
