Short biography
Katharine Meyer's father bought the Washington Post in 1933. She lived a privileged though lonely life as a child and in 1940 married lawyer Philip Graham. He became publisher of the Washington Post until his mental illness and death in 1963. At that point, Katherine Graham stepped in to lead the paper and headed it for more than 20 years. She oversaw its most famous period, the Watergate scandal that brought down the Nixon Administration, and the publication of the Pentagon Papers.
