1912 - 2001Katharine Meyer Graham (1917-2001) worked at the Washington Post as a young woman, after her father, Eugene Meyer, bought the paper in 1933. Meyer made Katharine Graham's husband, Philip Graham, the Post's publisher, but she took over the job after Philip's death in 1963. Under her tenure, the Post's status grew significantly, especially after it published the Pentagon Papers in 1971 and broke the Watergate scandal a year later. Graham became one of the country's most powerful figures in publishing.
