The Boston American featured the American Sunday Monthly Magazine.
In 1961, the Boston American merged with the Boston Record to become the Boston Record-American, a tabloid that was published throughout the day with five to six editions. In 1972, it merged with the Boston Herald Traveler (no hyphen) to become the Boston Herald-Traveler and Record American, a broadsheet that eventually was renamed the Boston Herald-American and is now the Boston Herald.
On the evening of January 11, 1908, there was a riot of approximately 200 unionized newsboys in front of the Boston American office. The newsboys attacked three policemen, who were stripped of their hats and badges and hats by 200 newsboys to-night. One of the cops and a bystander were hospitalized. The newsboys had stopped carrying the American after Hearst had increased its cost to them. When Hearst countered by bringing in non-unionized newsboys, the riot ensued.
