Sam Roe is a Chicago Tribune journalist who was part of a team of reporters that won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting for an examination of hazardous toys and other children's products.[1][2]

Roe also has been a Pulitzer Prize finalist three times.[3]

In 2000, Roe was a Pulitzer finalist for Investigative Reporting for exposing a 50-year pattern of misconduct by the American beryllium industry, whose production of the metal for nuclear weapons resulted in the deaths and injuries of dozens of workers.[4][5]

In 2011, Roe was a Pulitzer finalist for Investigative Reporting for a series of articles about 13 deaths at a Chicago nursing facility for children and young adults with severe disabilities.[6][7]

In 2013, Roe was a Pulitzer finalist for Investigative Reporting for articles that exposed how manufacturers imperiled public health by continuing to use toxic flame retardants in household furniture and crib mattresses, triggering reforms at the state and national level.[8][9]
