Bob Woodward was born to Jane and Alfred Eno Woodward II; his father was chief judge of the 18th Judicial Circuit Court. He attended Yale College, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in English literature and history. After college, he joined the US Navy, serving for five years and getting to the rank of lieutenant. Following his discharge, he tried to find a job as a reporter for The Washington Post, while at the same time attending The George Washington University. However, he wasn’t hired due to lack of experience, which he then acquired by working for a weekly newspaper, the Montgomery County Sentinel in Maryland for a year. In 1971, he applied again for the position at the Post, and this time he was hired.

At the very start of his career with The Washington Post, Woodward came onto the news story which will mark the 1970s and prove to be the most memorable moment of his career. Together with fellow Post journalist Carl Bernstein, he worked to expose the illegal activities of President Nixon’s administration during his re-election campaign, starting with a break-in into the Democratic National Committee headquarters, located in the Watergate office complex, which gave the name to this affair. With diligent and thorough investigative work, Woodward and Bernstein were able to prove the involvement of several government members in the attempt to sway the election result. Their coverage of the Watergate scandal brought the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 1973 to The Washington Post, and the reporters later achieved celebrity status with their book “All the President’s Men” (1974), which chronicled their work on Watergate, made into the movie of the same name, starring Robert Redford as Woodward, and Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein.

Woodward’s work brought another Pulitzer Prize to the Post, this time for National Reporting on 9/11 attacks. Over the course of his career, Woodward has won most of the major journalism awards, including the Worth Bingham Prize for Investigative Reporting (1972 and 1986), Sigma Delta Chi Award (1973), William Allen White Medal (2000), the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism (2001), and the Gerald R. Ford Prize for Reporting on the Presidency (2002). He is also noted for his coverage of George W. Bush’s presidency, since Woodward interviewed him six times, and subsequently wrote four books on the subject.

Apart from his journalistic work, Woodward is also a prolific non-fiction writer, having written or co-authored twelve bestsellers, and eighteen books in total. The first two, “All the President’s Men” (1974) and “The Final Days” (1976) are dedicated to Watergate scandal. Published over three decades later, “The Secret Man” (2005) adds to the legacy of Watergate, since it deals with the revelation of Woodward’s secret informant, the supposedly notorious Deep Throat.

Currently, Woodward serves as an associate editor of The Washington Post, while also spending his time giving lectures at colleges and universities.

Regarding his personal life, Bob has been married to his third wife Elsa Walsh, since 1989; the couple has two children together. Previously, he was married to Kathleen Middlekauff from 1966 to 1969, and Frances Roderick Barnard, from 1974 to 1979 with whom he has one child.

# Quote
1 Watergate proved that it was worth the effort to dig deeply and spend sufficient time on stories in order to ensure you’re presenting the truth as completely and honestly as possible. Hopefully that will continue and not be diminished by the impact of instant Internet news and 24-hour cable news programming, which tends to focus on breaking news rather than detailed reporting.
2 Carl Bernstein and I probably did not have enough self-doubt… Benjamin C. Bradlee is a great editor because of what he kept out of the paper as much as for what he allowed in. Bradlee believed what we had. The problem was proving it and publishing stories that were as credible as possible.
3 It is the responsibility of reporters to be aggressive, as long as they are fair and accurate. The media has a responsibility to question the actions of our leaders and to investigate any concentration of power. But reporters have an equal responsibility to prevent their own biases from influencing coverage. The media today probably does not dig deeply enough or spend sufficient time on stories. The best way to ensure that sources will be open and honest is to treat them fairly.
