Lucinda Franks (born 1946) is a former staff writer for The New York Times, and she has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and The Atlantic. Franks is also a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, for her reporting on the life and death of Diana Oughton, a member of The Weathermen, an anti-Vietnam war terrorist group, winning the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 1971 together with Thomas Powers. She is the youngest person to win a Pulitzer.
Franks was raised in a Christian family, the daughter of Lorraine and Tom Franks. She was raised in Wellesley, Massachusetts. In 1968, she graduated from Vassar College; after school, she moved to London, where she reported for United Press International. In 1973, she was transferred to New York City. Franks discovered that her father had been a secret agent during World War II, and wrote a book about it, My Father's Secret War: A Memoir, in 2007. Her second memoir is about her marriage: Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me (2014).
In 1977, she married former longtime district attorney for New York County, Robert M. Morgenthau, a widower and member of the Lehman family. They have two children: Joshua (born 1984) and Amy (born 1990). They live in New York City.
In 1979, the Supersisters trading card set was produced and distributed; one of the cards featured Franks's name and picture.
