Woodward, (Robert Upshur) Bob

(1943–  ) journalist; born in Geneva, Ill. A Washington Post reporter (1971–78), later metropolitan editor, and assistant managing editor (from 1981), he was best known for unmasking, with Carl Bernstein, the Watergate scandal and cover-up; their coverage of the investigative story of the century won almost every major journalistic prize including a 1973 public service Pulitzer Prize for the paper. Woodward wrote the controversial "insider" books such as The Brethren (with Scott Armstrong, 1979), Wired (1984), and The Commanders (1991).
