Ruth Tankersley, a scion of the McCormick media dynasty who served a tumultuous 19 months as a newspaper publisher in Washington and for more than six decades was a celebrated breeder of Arabian horses, died Feb. 5 at her home in Tucson. She was 91.

A daughter, biographer Kristie Miller, confirmed the death and said her mother had Parkinson’s disease.
