About Chris

Chris Georges was an honors graduate of Harvard, an editor at the Crimson and a Wall Street Journal reporter who died at age 33 from complications related to lupus. Following his death in 1998, his family, friends and colleagues established the Georges Fund in his name to memorialize his commitment to in-depth reporting on issues of enduring social value and the human impact of public policy.

The Nieman Foundation appreciates the continued support of the Georges Fund in sponsoring the event.
