On the evening of Friday, May 2, Atlantic Media Chairman David Bradley hosted an invitation-only welcome dinner at his Washington, D.C. home.  Named one of the top ten D.C. parties by Washingtonian Magazine, this event gathered 150 Beltway leaders and prominent out-of-towners from the worlds of business, entertainment, academia, non-profits, and government. On the eve of the White House Correspondents’ Association annual bash, this year’s Welcome Dinner celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner - a Washington tradition since 1914.

    The New Old Age

    Since the turn of the 20th century, average life expectancy has been rising steadily. In the United States, we can now expect to live an average of three decades longer than our great-grandparents. As we collectively age, our societal understandings of the rhythms of an average lifespan have been slow to adapt. With nearly 10,000 baby boomers moving into retirement every day, The Atlantic will examine the shape of the new old age and its impact on society.
