Charles Krauthammer, winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary, writes an internationally syndicated column for The Washington Post Writers Group. Krauthammer, named by the Financial Times as America's most influential commentator, began writing the weekly column for The Washington Post in January 1985. It now appears in more than 180 newspapers.
Krauthammer was born in New York City and raised in Montreal. He was educated at McGill University, majoring in political science and economics, Oxford University (Commonwealth Scholar in Politics) and Harvard (M.D. in 1975). He practiced medicine for three years as a resident and then chief resident in psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital.
In 1978, he quit medical practice, came to Washington to direct planning in psychiatric research for the Carter administration, and began contributing articles to The New Republic. During the presidential campaign of 1980, he served as a speech writer to Vice President Walter Mondale. He joined The New Republic as a writer and editor in 1981. He writes a monthly essay for Time magazine and contributes to several other publications, including The Weekly Standard and The New Republic. He is the recipient of innumerable awards, including the National Magazine Award for essays and the first annual ($250,000) Bradley Prize.
