Louis Seibold (October 10th, 1863 - May 10th, 1945) was a journalist who won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for an interview with President Woodrow Wilson. Afterwards, it was learned that the interview was fabricated.[1]

Early life

Seibold was born in Washington, D.C. on October 10th, 1863, to Louis Philip Seibold and Josephine Burrows (Dawson).[2]


Seibold spent most of his career with the New York World, during that time he covered many important stories, such as the eruption of Mount Pelée, coverage of the Spanish-American War, but most notably, he won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for his 1920 interview with Woodrow Wilson, which was later proved to be fabricated.[1][3]

Fabricated interview

Siebold, working together with Edith Wilson and Joseph Patrick Tumulty, created an interview narrative that presented a false picture to the American people about the state of the president's health.[4]
