Breaking news, rolled into a correction: As the Bowdoin Daily Sun first told you Tuesday morning, a number of alumni have earned Pulitzer honors, but sources tell us there are more than first reported.

Boston Globe reporter Joshua Miller ’08, and Globe editors Cynthia Needham ’99 and Scott Allen ’83 are part of the team awarded a Pulitzer in the Breaking News Reporting category for its coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings and the ensuing manhunt. Miller and Allen both reported for the Bowdoin Orient.

Mary Helen Miller ’09 — who was the Orient‘s opinion editor in her first year, features editor the year after, managing editor during her junior year, and co-editor-in-chief as a senior — was nominated as part of a team from the Chattanooga Times Free Press as finalists for their work on “Speak No Evil,” a series exploring the “no-snitch” culture that helps perpetuate a cycle of violence in one of the most dangerous cities in the South.
