William MacKaye: Washington Post Reporter and Editor

From a Washington Post obit by Adam Bernstein headlined “William MacKaye, a Washington Post editor, dies at 89”:

William R. MacKaye, a journalist who spent two decades at The Washington Post, initially as a reporter and editor of religious affairs and then as an editor on the paper’s now-defunct magazine, died in New Haven, Conn.

The cause was complications from a fall, said his son Alec MacKaye, a hardcore punk singer and songwriter.

Early in his career, Mr. MacKaye was a Washington correspondent filing stories for both the Houston Chronicle and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and he covered the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963 from Dallas.
