Diana Henriques, a financial reporter for the New York Times, presents “Investigative Journalism and American Business, an Uneasy Relationship from Its Origins to Its Present Possibilities” on Monday, Dec. 3, at noon in SUB II, Rooms 5, 6, and 7. A winner of numerous awards, Henriques has written a number of books, including Fidelity’s World: The Secret Life and Public Power of the Mutual Fund Giant, and her latest book, The White Sharks of Wall Street: Thomas Melton Evans and the Original Corporate Raiders.

Before her talk, Henriques will attend a breakfast hosted by the School of Management with 15 executives from financial companies, including Freddie Mac, Nasdaq, Morgan Stanley, Fannie Mae, and others at the Tower Club in Tyson’s Corner.

Since joining the New York Times in 1989, she has specialized in reporting on financial fraud, white-collar crime, and corporate governance issues. She was a member of the team that won the 1999 Gerald R. Loeb Award for deadline reporting in the large newspaper division for coverage of the near-collapse of Longterm Capital Management, a hedge fund whose trouble rocked the financial markets in September 1998. She was also one of four reporters honored for a 1996 series on how wealthy Americans can legally sidestep taxes.

The talk is sponsored by the Communication and History and Art History departments. For more information, call x31250.
