Katharine Graham's son takes his own life aged 69

Graham, a member of the family that previously owned and ran The Washington Post for decades, died on December 20 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the age of 69.

His grandfather Eugene Meyer bought the Post at a bankruptcy auction in 1933.

His father, Phil, committed suicide by shooting himself with a shotgun in 1963. Both of Graham's parents, and his brother and niece, held the positions of publisher and chief executive before the newspaper was sold to billionaire Jeff Bezos in 2013.

William's death came just two days before the Washington, DC, premiere of the movie "The Post", which recounts the paper's 1971 efforts to publish the infamous "Pentagon Papers" and features Oscar victor Meryl Streep as his late mom.

William's mother, Katherine, led The Washington Post after her husband's suicide, and is most iconically known for her role in publishing the Pentagon Papers-a Nixon-era report of the Vietnam War-in 1971.

She died at 84 in 2001, several days after being knocked unconscious when she stumbled on a condo walkway in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Graham was a lawyer at the prominent Washington firm of Williams & Connolly in the 1970s before settling in Los Angeles, where he taught trial law at his alma mater, the University of California at Los Angeles. He also is survived by his brothers, Donald Graham and Stephen Graham. He was a great teacher at UCLA. Since then, he concentrated on philanthropic activities, including those in education, medical research and support for veterans.

Katharine, who was Meyer's daughter, oversaw the paper through some of its most important stories, including the Watergate scandal.

The Post's obituary said Graham's survivors include his wife of seven years, his two children from a previous marriage, his sister and two brothers.
