Joseph Lenoir Chambers

Joseph Lenoir Chambers, editor of the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot. Chambers retired in 1961, not long after he guided the paper in its staunch editorial opposition to the school closings of 1958. In 1960, he won the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Editorial Writing as a result of those editorials.
