PASSAGES: David S. Broder


David S. Broder, the syndicated Washington Post political columnist and University of Maryland journalism professor, died March 9, 2011, of complications from diabetes, in Arlington County, Va. He was 81.

Broder was born Sept. 11, 1929, in Chicago Heights, 111., and received his bachelor's degree in liberal arts from the University of Chicago in 1947. In 1951, he completed a master's degree in political science at Chicago, and married Ann Creighton Collar. Broder had edited the Chicago Maroon student newspaper and reported for the Hyde Park Herald in the university's neighborhood. He served in the U.S. Army from 1951 to 1953, during which he wrote for the U.S. Forces Austria (USFA) Sentinel.

In 1953, Broder joined the Bloomington (111.) Pantograph, and in 1955, he began writing for Congressional Quarterly while also beginning to freelance for the New York Times. From 1960 to 1965, he covered politics for the Washington Star, and then worked for eighteen months at the Washington Bureau of the New York Times. Broder then moved to the Washington Post, for which he would write the rest of his career.

He started at the Post as a reporter and weekly op-ed contributor, but later was given a second weekly column, and then was syndicated by the Washington Post Wire Service (later Washington Post Writers Group) to as many as 300 newspapers. Effective Jan. 1, 2009, Broder accepted a Post "buyout offer," but he continued his column until a few weeks before his death.
