Nick Kotz was born in Texas during the Great Depression. He grew up in San Antonio, living with his maternal grandparents—Nathan and Anna Kallison—until he and his mother Tibe Kallison Lasser moved to Washington, DC in 1946 when she married noted physician Dr. Jacob Kotz.

As a reporter for the Washington Post and the Des Moines Register, and in six pathbreaking books, Nick Kotz won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, the National Magazine Award, two Robert F. Kennedy Awards, and eight other renowned prizes. Among his works are exposés of government corruption and studies of national defense, civil rights, social justice, and labor unions. His most recent book, The Harness Maker’s Dream: Nathan Kallison and the Rise of South Texas, received a 2015 San Antonio Conservation Society Publication Award. The Texas Institute of Letters named it a finalist for their Carr P. Collins Award for Non-fiction.
