After Phil Graham’s dying in 1963, management of The Washington Post Company passed to his wife Katharine Graham (1917–2001), who was also Eugene Meyer’s daughter. Katharine Graham described her personal anxiety and insecurity as she stepped right into a management function in her autobiography. In 1889, Hutchins bought the newspaper to Frank Hatton, a former Postmaster General, and Beriah Wilkins, a former Democratic congressman from Ohio. To promote the newspaper, the brand new owners requested the leader of the United States Marine Band, John Philip Sousa, to compose a march for the newspaper’s essay contest awards ceremony. It became the standard music to accompany the 2-step, a late nineteenth-century dance craze, and stays one of Sousa’s finest-known works. In April 1878, about four months into publication, The Washington Post purchased The Washington Union, a competing newspaper which was based by John Lynch in late 1877.
