Downtown in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Washington Post
In 1933, following a long period of general decline, The Post was purchased by Eugene Memer at a bankruptcy sale held on the steps of the building and was led by him toward distinction as one of the world's great newspapers.
This marker commemorates the ideals of honor, integrity and freedom of expression exemplified by his stewardship of The Post. It was set in place by employees who once worked at this site.
