Only one of seven crew members survived the sudden sinking of the Lady Mary, a scallop boat, in March 2009. Reporter Amy Ellis Nutt, NF ’05, spent seven months unraveling clues, and in November 2010, her five-part series, “The Wreck of the Lady Mary,” appeared on the front page of the Star-Ledger and on its website, where it featured photographs and video by her colleague Andre Malok. Nutt was awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing. Current Nieman Fellow Tony Bartelme, projects reporter with The Post and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina, was a finalist in this category, as was the Chicago Tribune’s Mary Schmich, NF ’96, for commentary.
