Caro has twice won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography, has three times won the National Book Critics Circle Award, for Best Nonfiction Book of the Year and Best Biography, and has also won virtually every other major literary honor, including the National Book Award, the Gold Medal in Biography from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Francis Parkman Prize, awarded by the Society of American Historians to the book that best "exemplifies the union of the historian and the artist." In 2010 he received the National Humanities Medal from President Barack Obama.
