Another Legend from the Past

John Douglas
One of the best known Washingtonians of the 50's and 60's was John Douglas.
You could probably count on one hand the number of people livng in the greater Washington, DC area who didn't know who John Douglas was.  He was WTOP TV's weatherman!

He came over pretty "straight laced" and sophistocated on TV, but in person, he was one of the funniest people I've ever known. What a sense of humor!

When Kathrine Graham of the POST brought in the Larry Israel crowd to humilate and replace all of the people her husband, Phil Graham had hired, John went back to Maine, I believe.

But those of us who worked with him will never forget his professionalism......and his great humor!


Last I heard, John was retired somewhere in Maine.
