Summary
Journalist William Raspberry was born in Okolona, Mississippi, on October 12, 1935. He earned a journalism degree from Indiana Central College and served two years as a public information officer with the U.S. Army before joining The Washington Post in 1962. He began as a teletypist and later wrote obituary notices before joining The Post's city desk as a reporter.
