Kay Graham In AAF’s Hall Of Fame

By: Jamie Santo

Another testament to Katharine Graham’s far-reaching impact was delivered last week when the American Advertising Federation announced her election to the Advertising Hall of Fame.

Graham, the former Washington Post Co. chairman and CEO who died in July, was the first woman to lead a Fortune 500 company and to serve as a director of The Associated Press.

Graham’s fellow inductees are Charles D. Peebler Jr., chairman emeritus of True North Communications Inc.; Hal Riney, chairman and CEO of Publicis & Hal Riney advertising; and John Smale, retired chairman and CEO of the Procter & Gamble Co. and former chairman of General Motors Corp.
