Rudolph A. Pyatt Jr., retired Washington Post journalist, dies at 88

by | Jan 23, 2022

Rudolph A. Pyatt Jr., a Washington Post journalist who retired in 2000 after 19 years writing a twice-weekly column on local business, has died. He was 88.

The cause was complications of dementia, said his wife, Jacqueline Pyatt.

According to The Post, “Pyatt was among an early corps of Black journalists who cracked the segregation barriers of Southern newspapers when he began his career in 1964 at his hometown publication, the Charleston (S.C.) News & Courier.

“He became a Washington correspondent in 1968 but soon left for work as a reporter at WETA, the Washington-area public TV station. He also spent a few years as director of public affairs for the D.C. public schools and as a consultant in the Washington mayor’s office before joining the Washington Star as a writer and editor. After the paper closed in 1981, he joined The Post and wrote his business column focused on economic development, taxes, commercial real estate and local government.”
