Michael Williamson b. 1957, is an American photojournalist who has won two Pulitzer Prizes. With writer Dale Maharidge, he is co-author of the book And Their Children After Them, which won the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction in 1990. That book, and another written with Maharidge, Journey to Nowhere: The Saga of the New Underclass, were produced while both men were on the staff of the Sacramento Bee. Singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen credited Journey to Nowhere as an inspiration for two songs from his album The Ghost of Tom Joad, "Youngstown" and "The New Timer". The book was re-released in 1995 with a foreword by Springsteen.
