Kenneth M. Callaway, CCAS BA ’60

Kenneth M. Callaway, CCAS BA ’60, an entrepreneur The Washington Post once dubbed a “self-made newsletter mogul,” died Dec. 8.

Kenneth Miller Callaway, a native of Arkadelphia, Ark., grew up in Alexandria and graduated from George Washington High School in 1952.

After serving in the Army for two years, he received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from George Washington University in 1960.

Mr. Callaway founded his business, Capitol Publications, in the mid-1960s with about $800 in start-up money. His first newsletters focused on grants available through President Lyndon B. Johnson’s anti-poverty programs and were marketed largely to local government officials.

Mr. Callaway was a founding member and past president of what became the Specialized Information Publishers Association.
