Willard M. Kiplinger (1891-1967) was best known as the founder of Kiplinger, a publishing company located in Washington, D.C..

Kiplinger grew up on the north side of Columbus, Ohio. As a high school upperclassman he was editor of the school newspaper where one of the illustrators was Dudley Fisher. He attended Ohio State University from 1908 until 1912 and was a member of Sigma Pi Fraternity. He and Ray Evans would recruit Fisher into the fraternity.[1]

He moved to Washington, D.C. in 1916 and started the company Kiplinger by 1920.

Kiplinger's son Austin H. Kiplinger succeeded him as head of the publishing company.

Kiplinger Distinguished Contributions to Journalism is an award given by the National Press Foundation in his honor.
