Edward W. Scripps portrait
Description: Portrait of Edward W. Scripps (1854-1926), ca. 1900. After purchasing the Cleveland Penny Press in 1878, Scripps built the first newspaper chain in the United States. Through a series of acquisitions, he formed United Press International, which sent reporters all around the world to report on news events instead of relying on reporters from other papers for information. Shortly after establishing the United Press Association, Scripps also created the Newspaper Enterprise Association. This organization provided Scripps' newspapers and other papers around the world with editorial cartoons, feature stories, and pictures. View on Ohio Memory.
