Father Charles Krauthammer’s Bio

Charles Krauthammer was born on 13 March 1950 in New York, to Shulim and Thea, into a family of Orthodox Jews and of Ukrainian and Belgian ancestry. However, when Charles was five years old his family relocated to Montreal. When it comes to his education, Charles Krauthammer was a student of Herzliah High School, and then enrolled into McGill University, located in Montreal, graduating in 1970 with honors in political science and economics. As he stated, his education at McGill made him aware of the dangers of political extremism, and cleansed him of any romanticism. Having graduated, Krauthammer went on to attend Balliol College, Oxford UK, as a Commonwealth Student. After that, he returned to the US where he studied medicine at Harvard, finally graduating in 1975. He was also interested in psychiatry, and was a resident at Massachusetts General Hospital, in the position of chief resident, subsequently writing “Archives of General Psychiatry”. In 1978, he moved to Washington, DC where he conducted psychiatric research.

Columnist and Political Commentator Career

As of 1979, Charles became a member of The New Republic, serving as a writer and editor, and in 1983 began writing for Time magazine, providing them with many essays which helped him rise to fame, and gain critical acclaim. Shortly afterwards, Charles began writing editorials for The Washington Post on a regular basis, becoming a nationally syndicated columnist. Another of his acclaimed essays is “The Unipolar Moment”, published in 1989. As of 1990, he began working as a panelist for Inside Washington, a PBS political roundtable, remaining in the show until 2013. Besides that, he was a contributor to Fox News Channel, and appeared in numerous series such as “The O’Reilly Factor” and “The Kelly File”, beginning his work on the latter in 2013 and finishing in 2017. Since then he has worked on multiple projects, such as “The First 100 Days”, “The Story with Martha MacCallum” and “Tucker Carlson Tonight”. Overall, he has made 24 TV appearances over the course of 13 years, and as the result of his hard work, collected numerous awards in journalism.


In 1987, his weekly column for The Washington Post earned him a prestigious Pulitzer Prize for commentary. In mid-1993, Charles was rewarded with an Honorary degree of Doctor of Letters from McGill University, and in 2006 the Financial Times named him the most influential commentator in America. As of 2009, this journalist and political commentator was given the Eric Breindel Award for Excellence in Opinion Journalism.


In late 2017, Charles had surgery in which a cancerous tumor was removed from his abdomen. His doctors believed that the surgery was successful, but unfortunately Krauthammer’s cancer returned in the following year, and on 21 June he died from cancer of the small intestine, aged 68. Speaking about this, Daniel said that saying that Charles was his father, in the past tense, is still a shock to him, adding that it evokes great sadness. Reportedly, the two of them were very close, and Daniel still misses his father every day. However, he turned his sadness into something far more important, as he stands up for causes that were important to his dad.
