Emmie Twombly: Empress of an Empire
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I first heard of Katharine Weymouth while writing about her grandmother, Katharine Graham, for my thesis in college. Katharine Weymouth is the Chief Executive Officer of Washington Post Media and Publisher of The Washington Post, a newspaper that has won 47 Pulitzer Prizes. Her grandmother, Katharine Graham was an American Media Powerhouse, who notably led The Post through the Pentagon Papers and Watergate scandals. Katharine Graham was a leading figure in international politics, business and social circles. She wrote one of my favorite memoirs, Personal History that captures an incredible woman and time in American history. I felt incredibly honored to speak with Katharine Weymouth on Monday, as it was a historic day for her and her family who have owned The Post for over 80 years. I had selected the title of this article before I knew that the Graham family had sold The Washington Post to the billionaire founder and chief executive of Amazon.com, Jeff Bezos for $25 ...

Grand Central To Turn 100
Huffington Post - about 4 years
NEW YORK -- Grand Central, the country's most famous train station and one of the finest examples of Beaux Arts architecture in America, turns 100 on Feb. 1. Its centennial comes 15 years after a triumphant renovation that removed decades of grime and restored its glittering chandeliers, cathedral windows and famous ceiling depicting a night sky. The building's survival is also a testament to historic preservation: The landmark was saved from demolition in the 1970s thanks to a battle spearheaded by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1978, the court ruled that cities have the right to protect historic buildings, even if that limits the owner's ability to develop or sell the property. The decision legitimized preservation efforts around the country. Grand Central was an engineering wonder when it opened in 1913, with trains flowing seamlessly over 67 subterranean tracks and thousands of people departing and arriving daily ...

    Age 33
    Bessette-Kennedy died on July 16, 1999, along with her husband and older sister Lauren, when the Piper Saratoga II HP that Kennedy was piloting crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off Martha's Vineyard.
    More Details Hide Details The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) determined that the probable cause of the crash was: "The pilot's failure to maintain control of the airplane during a descent over water at night, which was a result of spatial disorientation. Factors in the accident were haze and the dark night." After a lengthy search, the wreckage was discovered in the late afternoon of July 21. The bodies were recovered from the ocean floor by Navy divers and taken by motorcade to the county medical examiner's office, where autopsies revealed that the crash victims had died upon impact. At the same time, the Kennedy and Bessette families announced their plans for memorial services. In the late hours of July 21, the three bodies were taken from Hyannis to Duxbury where they were cremated in the Mayflower Cemetery crematorium. On the morning of July 22, their ashes were scattered from the Navy ship off the coast of Martha's Vineyard.

    More Details Hide Details She took some time before choosing to accept Kennedy's proposal. College friend Dana Gallo Stayton said that while she was excited, Bessette "wanted to be sure it was the right decision." It was later discovered, by the Boston Globe, that the chapel on Cumberland had been reserved for three months, while planning for the wedding had only begun 2 months prior, when Bessette-Kennedy asked Narciso Rodriguez of Cerruti to start designing her dress. The wedding took place on a remote Georgia island, Cumberland. Cumberland is 18 miles long and is accessible only by boat. There is no telephone service and none of the roads are paved. The wedding took place in a tiny wooden chapel, the First African Baptist Church, where the ceremony was held by candlelight. The altar was a simple wooden stand, and its cross was made of two sticks held together by pieces of string.
    She quit her job at Calvin Klein Ltd in the spring of 1996.
