    You didn't say "where" you wanted that to display so will provide this from my notes:

    <?php
    //for each category, show one post
    $cat_args=array(
      'orderby' => 'name',
      'order' => 'ASC'
       );
    $categories=get_categories($cat_args);
      foreach($categories as $category) {
        $args=array(
          'showposts' => 1,
          'category__in' => array($category->term_id),
          'caller_get_posts'=>1
        );
        $posts=get_posts($args);
          if ($posts) {
            echo '<p>Category: <a href="' . get_category_link( $category->term_id ) . '" title="' . sprintf( __( "View all posts in %s" ), $category->name ) . '" ' . '>' . $category->name.'</a> </p> ';
            foreach($posts as $post) {
              setup_postdata($post); ?>
              <p><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></p>
              <?php
            } // foreach($posts
          } // if ($posts
        } // foreach($categories
    ?>
