Whitelaw Reid's son, Ogden Mills Reid, 1882-1947, was the next editor of the paper, assisted and succeeded (1947) by his wife, Helen Rogers Reid, 1882-1970. The couple strengthened the paper by purchasing the New York Herald, creating the New York Herald Tribune (folded 1966). The deal included the Paris Herald, leading to the formation of the International Herald Tribune (now owned and published by the New York Times).
The Reids' sons, Whitelaw Reid, 1913-2009, and Ogden Rogers Reid, 1925-, directed the Herald Tribune from 1953 until 1959, after John Hay Whitney acquired control (1958). Ogden Rogers Reid was U.S. ambassador to Israel (1959-61) and in 1962 was elected to the House of Representatives, where he served 6 terms, retiring in 1975.
