Ernie Pyle was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist who reported on World War II from both Europe and the Pacific until his death in 1945 on an island northwest of Okinawa. He was also an Albuquerque resident who said about his affection for the southwest that it was "like being in love with a woman. You love her and you can't help yourself." The only home he owned is now the Ernie Pyle Library in southeast Albuquerque. This class will examine the life and writings of this noted Albuquerque resident.
