Pulitzer Prize winning Journalist. Charles E. Davis Jr. was for many years a byline writer for the Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles Examiner. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Journalism twice. While a member of the staff of the New York Journal-American, he wrote a story about the pioneer use of penicillin, based on information he and a team of reporters obtained, and it won a 1943 Pulitzer Prize. Mr. Davis was one of the members of the Times' metropolitan staff which was awarded a 1966 Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the 1965 Watts riot and its aftermath. He worked on newspapers in Albany, N.Y., New York City, Miami, Milwaukee, Baltimore and Washington before joining the Examiner in 1953. When that paper ceased publication in 1962, he became a Times staff writer.  (bio by: JD)
