The Grand Forks Herald
Grand Forks Herald
won a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service
Pulitzer Prize for Public Service
for its coverage of the 1997 flood but the prize was bittersweet, as the Herald building had not only been inundated but, ironically, burned to the ground in the midst of the floodwaters. Despite losing its offices during the flood, the Herald never missed a day of publication. Temporary offices were set up at the University of North Dakota
North Dakota
and at a nearby elementary school. Papers were distributed free of charge to flood "refugees" in neighboring towns. Following the flood, the newspaper rebuilt its office building in downtown Grand Forks. Its distinctive features are a tall clock tower and the symbolism built into the structure, as well as parts of the old building that survived the fire. A new printing facility was also built in an industrial park in the western part of Grand Forks. The historic building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1] It was a two-story Art Moderne brick commercial building built in three parts, in 1939 (designed by Theodore B. Wells, 1949, and 1959.[2] Corporate ownership[edit] Knight Ridder
