Together with her late husband Abe, Irene Pollin owned the Washington Wizards, Mystics and Capitals, carving out a homegrown sports culture in the nation’s capital. After coping with tragedy within their family, the Pollins built the region’s iconic sports arenas, from the Capital Centre in Landover, Md. to the Verizon Center in D.C.’s Chinatown. The Pollins became the longest-tenured owners of the NBA, using their position to push for affordable housing locally and public health awareness on the national stage.
