Biographical informationPulitzer Prize-winning journalist Malcolm Browne began his professional career as a chemist. Drafted at the tail end of the Korean War, Browne was assigned to write for a military newspaper, Pacific Stars and Stripes, thus launching his celebrated career as a war correspondent. He was among the first correspondents to cover the war in Vietnam and was working for the Associated Press in Saigon in 1964 when his insightful reporting on civil unrest in South Vietnam earned him a Pulitzer. He joined The New York Times in 1968 and eventually switched to science writing. After a stint as an editor at Discover magazine, he returned to the battlefield once more to cover the 1991 Persian Gulf War. (from Reporting America at War)
