Baltimore Sun
Daily newspaper published in Baltimore, Md.

, U.S. It was begun as a four-page penny tabloid in 1837 by Arunah Shepherdson Abell, a journeyman printer from Rhode Island. Known through much of its history for its coverage of national and international news, the paper was run by Abell's family until 1910, when control passed to a group of Baltimore businessmen, including H. Crawford Black. Members of Black's family were chairmen of the board until 1984. In 1986 the Sun was acquired by the Times Mirror Company, which in turn was acquired by the Tribune Company in 2000. Author H.L. Mencken was for years prominently associated with the Sun.
