Boston Globe, 1975-1984

Identifier: IV.

Scope and Contents

In 1975, Lockman began working for the Boston Globe, primarily covering local and state politics. Lockman also covered other issues related to transportation and insurance, civil rights and race relations.

This series contains drafts of Lockman's articles for the Globe, sorted thematically, as well as some full articles. Two larger reporting projects Lockman was involved in, Boston: The Race Factor and a six-part series on Zimbabwe, are reflected in this series.

The Race Factor was a year-long project involving Lockman and other Globe journalists documenting race relations in the Boston area. This reporting earned a Pulitzer prize in 1984. Copies of some of this coverage is included in this series.

In 1980, Lockman spent a month in Zimbabwe and wrote of his experiences in the country. This series includes some of his research notes, including publications from Zimbabwe, drafts of his articles, and copies of all six articles published in the Boston Globe.
