Shana Alexander was a journalist who wrote for numerous magazines, including Newsweek and National Geographic, and was the first female staff writer employed by Life magazine. She was also the first female editor at McCall's magazine. She was perhaps best known for her “Point-Counterpoint” segments with James J. Kilpatrick at the end of each 60 Minutes broadcast in the late 1970s, which were so popular that they were spoofed on Saturday Night Live. She died in June 2005.
