Additional Information: 

The Chicago Herald American was an afternoon newspaper published in Chicago, Illinois between 1939 and 1953. Newspaper magnate William Randolf Hearst consolidated the Chicago American and the Herald Examiner after the Great Depression affected sales of both newspapers. The Chicago Herald American was known for its competitive reporting as afternoon newspapers were reliant on breaking news to sell the papers on the street. In 1953, the paper was renamed Chicago American after its sale to the Chicago Tribune, and was later absorbed into the Chicago Tribune in 1974. Post World War II, future president John F. Kennedy covered the 1945 United Nations conference in San Francisco as a reporter for the Chicago Herald American.
