Barbara J. Greenspun, whose support has allowed IRE to train thousands of journalists throughout the country in investigative techniques, passed away on June 1.
Greenspun, publisher of the Las Vegas Sun, is credited with helping to lay the foundation that led to the paper winning the Pulitzer Prize for public service last year.
In 2005, the Greenspun family established a fund within the IRE Endowment to support regional seminars in investigative techniques under the IRE Watchdog Workshop program. Since then, IRE has been honored to list Barbara Greenspun on each and every one of its 10-12 Watchdog seminars per year.
