Argentina’s Ana Baron, King of Spain Journalism Prize Winner, Dies

BUENOS AIRES – The esteemed Argentine journalist Ana Baron, winner of the King of Spain International Journalism Prize, died of cancer Friday in New York, the daily Clarin, for which she worked for 15 years, reported. She was 65.

After fighting the disease for two years, Baron died at her home in Manhattan, surrounded by family and friends.

The journalist worked in France and the United States, among other places, and the excellence of her work was recognized in Argentina and throughout Latin America.

In 1999, together with a team from Clarin, Ana Baron received the King of Spain International Journalism Prize for “Los Papeles de la Embajada” (Papers from the Embassy), an investigative report that revealed what the United States knew about the coup d’etat of March 24, 1976, in Argentina, which led to the dictatorship that ruled the country until 1983.

Baron based the article, published in 1998, on 125 documents sent by the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires to then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, which show that the U.S. government knew at least one month before the coup how it was going to be pulled off.

She was also a writer and published “Les Enjeux de la Guerre des Malouines (What’s at Stake in the Falklands War) and “Bill Clinton: Keys to Understand His Government.”

She also contributed to a collective effort on a book entitled “Por Que Se Fueron: Testimonios de Argentinos en el Exterior” (Why They Are Gone: A Study on the Argentinean Exile).
