Susan Fisher Sullam
The story of the Monuments Men is only part of a much larger story. In 2013, at the urging of a historian, Susan Fisher Sullam uncovered hundreds of pages of top secret and classified files that had belonged to her late father, Joel Fisher. While her father never discussed what he did during the war with her, she was able to piece the story together, which was published in June 2014 in The Washington Post Magazine.
Susan Fisher Sullam has spent her career in journalism and politics. She worked as a journalist for 10 years in Washington, D.C. for Gannett News Service and Knight-Ridder Newspapers. In 1986, she joined Ben Cardin’s first campaign for Congress as his press secretary. From 1987-2006, she served as U.S. Congressman Cardin’s Communications Director and continued in that role when he became a U.S. Senator in 2007. She retired as Senator Cardin’s Communications Director in July 2013.
