Description:- Katharine Meyer Graham (1917-2001) was an American newspaper publisher. She led her family's newspaper, The Washington Post, from 1963 to 1991.

She was the first 20th century female publisher of a major American newspaper. Graham's memoir, Personal History, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1998.
