Boston Globe, The
Daily newspaper published in Boston, one of the more influential newspapers in the U.S. Founded in 1872, it was purchased in 1877 by Charles H. Taylor.

Under his leadership, it began publishing morning and evening editions, increased local and regional coverage, and introduced big headlines, especially on sensational stories. In the 20th century, still headed by the Taylor family, the paper began providing more national and international news while maintaining a generally liberal editorial stance. The New York Times Co. acquired the Globe in 1993.

▪ American newspaper
      daily newspaper published in Boston, the city's largest and one of the most influential newspapers in the United States.

      Founded in 1872, the Globe grew slowly at first, reaching a circulation of about 8,000 in 1877, when it was purchased by Charles H. Taylor. Under Taylor as publisher, the Globe began to publish an evening as well as a morning edition, to increase its coverage of New England and local news, and to feature big headlines, especially on sensational stories of crime and catastrophe. Taylor laced the local and regional news as heavily as possible with subscribers' names.

      The Boston Globe has long been ranked one of the top papers in the United States. In the 20th century the Globe, still under Taylor and then his sons, continued to stress local and regional news but devoted increasing attention to national and international news coverage while maintaining a generally liberal editorial stance. In 1993 the New York Times (New York Times, The) Company acquired the Globe for $1.1 billion. The modern Globe is recognized for its makeup, its investigative reporting, and its wide range of comment on subjects ranging from music to politics to medicine. As of 2001, the newspaper had earned 16 Pulitzer Prizes (Pulitzer Prize) since its first, in 1966.
