Princeton University Professor Wins Award For Environmental Writing

-

A Princeton University professor has won the 2018 Audubon New York Award for his writing on environment conservation.

John McPhee, Princeton University’s Ferris Professor of Journalism in Residence, won the award with Laura O’Donohue at a ceremony in New York that took place on November 7.

“Audubon New York is proud to honor Laura O’Donohue and John McPhee for their commitment to conservation, now and into the future. Through their dedicated efforts to educate, inform and inspire, they are awakening new generations of conservation leaders,” Ana Paula Tavares, executive director of Audubon New York and Connecticut, said while presenting the award.

The award, which was constituted in 2015 and is presented every year, recognizes writers who, through the medium of writing, influence the debate on environment conservation.

McPhee, who has been teaching at Princeton since 1975, has also won the Pulitzer Prize for his book “Annals of the Former World,” in 1999.

In May, he was awarded the Sandrof Award for Lifetime Achievement by the National Book Critics Circle.
