Herald Square, New York City, circa 1908

The New York Herald, which later became the Herald-Tribune, is considered one of the great newspapers in U.S. history. Founded by James Gordon Bennett in 1835, the Herald became known for aggressively pursuing news stories. In 1869, the Herald sent Henry Morton Stanley to Central Africa to find the missionary David Livingstone, a hunt that captivated readers around the globe for two years. The Herald-Tribune closed in 1966.
