Graham, president of the Wash- , ington Post Co., Would have excelled in whatever field commanded his energy and ? ability; He chose journalism,'and leaves' as his legacy lin independent newspaper with ?.an international reputation, .an?Jmpressive _range of achievements in public-service end a host of memories of a gallant figure. It is a legacy that will endure. his associates on this ilea/simper. kr. Graham 'Was' as much a friend Ss an cm- 'ployer. There Was no detail of Jciurnalisin he regarded as too trifling to engage his ? sympathetic attention and no person beyond ,reach of his coneern., ,His rangy ,figure and quicksilver wit were as familiar a part of our enterprise as the fonts of type in our composing room. *In .all that he dealt with at the Washington Post and its related ven- tures, he was broadly liberal, eminently prac- tical and endowed with an intuitive grasp of coming needs. ' '? . ? , . Trained as a lawyer, Mr. Graham served as law secretary. to both Mr. Justice Frank- furter and Mr. Justice Reed; he never lost his concern with law and justice?or a. ca- pacity for generous anger when either. was ignored. After rising from private to major in the Army Air Force, he returned- to the Capital after the war and gave his full ener- gies to the Washington Post. The record speaks for itself. ..In 1946, Mr. Graham became publisher a newspaper then ranked third in -circula- tion in Washington and that incurred drain- -4 lug deficits. In collaboration ? With Eugene Meyer, Mr. Graham gave a secure foundation to the Post. -A new plant Was built, the Times-Herald purchased, and a television rand radio division, including WTOP in Washington and WJXT in Jacksonville, was ._formed. The partnership of Mr. Meyer and Mr. Graham transcended normal business relations and family ties; there was a fra- ternal affinity between two persons of corn- ? plementary character whose closeness as- sured executive continuity when, in 1959, Mr. Meyer died. Growth continued in recent years as the Post expanded its facilities, acquired News- week and Art News, and -established a news ' service. in -partnership with the Los-Angeles Times. The range of Mr. Graham's interest and acquaintanceship was extraordinary, and though his contribution of signed articles- _ was infrequent, his suggestions were not. They gave depth and authority to much that appeared under the name of others. If the .. Post today is both prospergus and influen- tial, a full measure of -credit is owed to Philip L. Graham. ? His country and city commanded much of. his time. Through his father, who was an . influential State senator in Florida, Mr. Gra- ham early in life acquired an insight into the skills of politics. He could combine moral courage, wit, and tact in dealing with others, and his ability profited S bewildering diversity of causes?everything from the Ad- vertising Council, the United Givers Fund, the Federal City 'Council, the Committee for Economic Development, and George Wash- ington University to? the Communications Satellite Corp. Mr. Graham invested the full capacity of his mind and heart in anything that deeply moved and interested him. He" was not -a person given to qualified commitments to his country, his enterprise, or his friends. '-It was this quality that precipitated .the illness that led to his death. Our sense of loss is total; he was a?rean neither easily forgotten nor found again.. ? . ? : OPERATION' SWIFT STRIKE ? "(Mr.. GEBBGNS asked and?wai. given permission to address the?
