Woodward and his former Washington Post colleague Carl Bernstein broke the Watergate scandal which led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon in August 1974. The pair won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 1973. Following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Woodward led the paper’s coverage which won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting.

In addition, Woodward has written 17 books which have documented the Supreme Court of the United States, the Central Intelligence Agency and all the presidents since Nixon. His newest book, “The Last of the President’s Men,” takes another look at Watergate by focusing on Nixon’s aide Alexander Butterfield. It is scheduled to be released Oct. 13.
