Fun Facts

When Katharine Meyer Graham took over The Washington Post in 1953, she said “I had very little idea of what I was supposed to be doing, so I set out to learn. What I essentially did was to put one foot in front of the other, shut my eyes, and step off the edge.” For many years, she was the only female head of a Fortune 500 corporation.
