The Century Foundation, one of the nation’s oldest think tanks, announced the addition of Barton Gellman as Senior Fellow.
Gellman is a critically honored author, journalist and blogger. His professional distinctions include two Pulitzer Prizes (individual and team), the George Polk Award and Harvard's Goldsmith Prize for investigative reporting. His bestselling book, Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency, won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and was named a New York Times Best Book of 2008. His previous books include Contending with Kennan: Toward a Philosophy of American Power and a history of Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
“Bart Gellman is a respected writer, researcher and voice on national security and foreign policy, and The Century Foundation is excited to welcome him and support his ongoing work,” said Janice Nittoli, President of The Century Foundation.
After twenty-one years at The Washington Post, where he served tours as legal, military, diplomatic and foreign correspondent, Gellman joined Time magazine in 2010 as Contributing Editor at Large. Since 2011, he has also been a lecturer and author in residence at Princeton and a fellow at New York University's Brennan Center for Justice. Gellman graduated summa cum laude from Princeton and earned a Master’s degree in Politics at University College, Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar.
“The Century Foundation has a rich intellectual history, dating back ninety-plus years, and is an ideal home for my work,” Gellman said. “I am honored to join so many great colleagues and I look forward to helping The Century Foundation lead the conversation about our national security policies.”
At The Century Foundation, Gellman will join a distinguished foreign policy team, working alongside fellows Morton Abramowitz, Thanassis Cambanis, Michael Cohen, Michael Wahid Hanna, Patrick Radden Keefe and Stephen Schlesinger. As Senior Fellow, Gellman will continue work on a new book as well as publish periodic articles on security, surveillance and civil liberties in an era of increasing monitoring by government and private interests.
