Joseph Pulitzer — or at least his last name — is most widely known through the writing awards.

And even if you didn’t know he was a newspaperman, you might’ve guessed that since the awards bearing his name honor journalistic work along with books.

But we’re guessing very few folks (including us) knew that his time in journalism was so stressful that he created a secret code to communicate with his staff.

Literary Hub informed us about this and added that a copy of Pulitzer’s code book has survived; it’s kept at Columbia University Libraries, which has posted a few images from it on its website.
