Boston — James Nelson Goodsell, South America correspondent of The Christian Science Monitor, has been named this year's recipient of the Inter American Press Association-Tom Wallace award for his coverage of the 1982 Argentine-British war over the Falkland Islands.

During April, May and June of 1982, he interviewed hundreds of Argentines, including top officers and ordinary soldiers, as well as civilians.
