Dorothy Schiff

Dorothy Schiff

Dorothy Schiff led many lives, from debutante to social reformer, but she is best remembered as the publisher of the New York Post, the first woman to run a New York newspaper.

Dorothy Schiff

Married four times before resuming her maiden name, Dorothy Schiff, owner and publisher of the New York Post newspaper for thirty-seven years, was perhaps most accurately described as “Mrs. Post.” Her publishing philosophy was simple: The Post must avoid “narrow-mindedness, prejudice, and all the things it is the business of liberals to fight.”
