True Westerners

Rural Minnesota native and Carleton College alumnus T.J. Stiles moved to New York City to attend graduate school at Columbia University in 1986. New York would be his home until 2006, when he moved to California’s San Francisco Bay area. This year, Stiles’s most recent biography, Custer’s Trials, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for History, his second Pulitzer. Today, he lives in Berkeley, with his wife, Jessica, and their two children, where he is working on his next book, the life story of Nez Perce leader Chief Joseph.
