Considered "The First Lady of the Press," former White House Bureau Chief Helen Thomas is a trailblazer who broke through barriers for women reporters. Thomas worked for United Press International for more than 55 years covering every president since John F. Kennedy. She was the first woman officer of the National Press Club and the only female print journalist to accompany President Nixon on his breakthrough trip to China in 1972.
The daughter of Lebanese immigrants, Thomas graduated from Detroit Public Schools and Wayne State University. In 2000 the Society of Professional Journalists named her the first recipient of the Helen Thomas Lifetime Achievement Award.
Note: Helen Thomas died in 2013.
