A Winner

Rob Koenig (left) accepts prize in the Marlin Fitzwater ID contest — three cucumbers, delivered to his St. Louis home by New Bay Books creative director Bill Lambrecht. Koenig is a former Washington correspondent and the author of The Fourth Horseman: One Man's Secret Campaign to Fight the Great War in America — about a little-known American maker of anthrax and deadly bacteria in the World War I era. Koenig correctly identified Fitzwater, White House press secretary to Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, in a photo from an event featuring author Kenneth Walsh.
