Eric Nalder is no rookie when it comes to hard-hitting investigative reporting. A two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Nalder has a long track record of award-winning work:
When the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska’s Prince William Sound stunned the nation, Nalder and an investigative team from THE SEATTLE TIMES investigated the disaster and exposed weaknesses in the regulations on tankers. (1990 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting)
Staff reporters for THE SEATTLE TIMES, including Nalder, won the prestigious Goldsmith Prize for exposing the scandals of former Washington Senator Brockman “Brock” Adams. In the story, the team reported on how several women claimed they were sexually harassed and physically molested by the congressman over the course of two decades. (1993 Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting)
In January 1995 an arsonist set ablaze a large warehouse in Seattle. Four firefighters died. Eric Nalder and Duff Wilson looked into the Seattle Fire Department’s handling of the blaze and found the deaths might have been prevented if standard procedures had been followed. (1996 Society of Professional Journalists “Excellence in Journalism” Investigative Reporting Award)
Nalder and a team of reporters for THE SEATTLE TIMES investigated the mismanagement of housing funds for Native Americans on reservations. They found that much of the $3 million the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development distributed to tribal-housing authorities was improperly disbursed. Instead of sending money to low-income families, corrupt officials sent the HUD money to recipients who lived well above the poverty line, including a millionaire former pro-football player. (1997 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting)
Eric Nalder, Kim Barker, and Anne Koch investigated the abuse of elderly and disabled residents in long-term-care facilities in Washington state. In one case a husband abused and imprisoned his disabled wife on a sailboat while he was being paid by the state to take care of her. (2001 Clarion Award Investigative Reporting)
