Washingtonian 50th Anniversary Issue Hits Newstands

by | Sep 25, 2015

Washingtonian magazine’s 50th anniversary issue has hit the newsstands, marking half a century of serving Washington.

Behind the main cover, the keepsake issue features five different covers, each showing past cover images and headlines reflecting five decades of Washingtonian’s history. Inside, the issue celebrates 50 key moments that shaped modern Washington, D.C., and spotlights major trends that changed the region—from the growth of Metro to the expansion of the area’s restaurant scene, cultural institutions and real estate.

“This issue is our guide to the Washington that was 50 years ago and the way it is today,” said publisher Catherine Merrill Williams.

The anniversary issue spotlights achievers who have been part of the fabric of the past half century—from martial-arts pioneer Jhoon Rhee to broadcast legend Katie Couric, from punk-rock legend Henry Rollins to basketball star turned educator Wes Unseld. It also includes an oral history of the most famous injury in football history: The 1985 sacking of Redskin Joe Theismann. The famed quarterback, former coach Joe Gibbs, New York Giant Lawrence Taylor, broadcaster Frank Herzog, and  others share memories of the moment that that made Washington gridiron history.

The magazine is marking its milestone anniversary by donating a total of $50,000 to five Washington nonprofits that have served the area for 50 years or more – Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Children’s National Health System, Ford’s Theatre, and Junior Achievement of Greater Washington.The magazine will mark its birthday on October 28 by hosting a celebration at the National Museum of Women in the Arts for area leaders in business, government, the arts, community service and media.
