Philip Merrill Memorial Service

Vice President Dick Cheney, dignitaries, friends and family gathered yesterday to remember the life of publisher and former diplomat Philip Merrill, 72, who passed on while sailing alone on the Chesapeake Bay on June 10, 2006. Phil Merrill purchased Capital-Gazette Newspapers in 1968, later adding Baltimore magazine and Washingtonian magazine (1979) to his company.
My husband took great joy in publishing the Capital-Gazette Newspapers and the Washingtonian. He was particularly proud of the fact that he ran the oldest continuously published newspaper in the United States. - Eleanor Merrill on the passing of her husband
