Overview and metadata sections

Cresswell, Robert, 1922-

The New York Herald Tribune was a newspaper created in 1924 when the New York Tribune acquired the New York Herald. In 1966, the New York City branch of the paper became defunct.

The collection consists of typescript copies of business reports and analyses of Cresswell who was business manager with the New York Herald Tribune. The collection includes a survey with recommendations for yearly savings for the Tribune dated April 1935, prepared by Howard Davis and Robert Cresswell; a summary of the economies effected, 1937-1938, broken down by department and section; a life insurance survey; and a plea for providing retirement income for officers and employees of the Tribune, with a cover letter from F. Ellsworth Baker.

Arranged in chronological order.

The typescripts were given to the Library by Robert Cresswell in November, 1946.
