Until the late s, Adler had been viewed as Ochs' successor, but Sulzberger's natural abilities soon overshadowed him. In stepping into this new role, he made it clear that he saw himself as a steward who was to preserve the quality and status of The Times. He wanted to continue Ochs' vision for the paper, "to give the news impartially, without fear or favor, regardless of party, sect or interest involved.
For the first year he made no changes out of respect for Ochs. After that he began to institute the many innovations that reinvented the image of xxThe Timesxx. He introduced more and larger photographs and allowed more leeway with the format of the front page, headlines, and body of the paper.
He introduced new technologies to improve all aspects of production, including the Times Facsimile, the transmission of photographs over telephone wires, allowing for the more and larger photographs in the paper. In , he officially hired Anne O'Hare McCormick she had been a freelancer and regular contributor since but Ochs did not approve of women working on xxThe Timesxx and Ruby Hart Phillips in He instituted a daily luncheon that all members of the managerial staff were expected to attend.
Presidents, foreign leaders, industrialists, and many other dignitaries were invited to these luncheons where conversation was off the record. Because leaders were able to speak freely it allowed Sulzberger and his associates to gain greater insight into world events and to cultivate relationships with these people.
Perhaps the greatest change instituted by Sulzberger was on the editorial page. Throughout his time at xxThe Timesxx, Ochs maintained that it was not the role of a newspaper to advance opinions.
However, Sulzberger felt that the neutral presentation of the news would in no way be compromised by a strong editorial page; it was moreover the duty of a great newspaper to present educated arguments. He did not impose his own beliefs on the editorial staff, but instead allowed them to debate their side of an issue with him when he disagreed.
The person who presented the best argument in these cases won the right to decide whether a column would be printed. On occasion Sulzberger had difficulty having some of his own editorials printed. Once he became comfortable in his stewardship, Sulzberger became involved in a number of organizations outside of xxThe Timesxx. He was elected a director of the Associated Press in , was a trustee of Columbia University from to , and was very active in the Red Cross and was elected to a number of positions.
He was granted a number of honorary degrees and other awards from institutions across the country and the world. Sulzberger retired as publisher in and his son-in-law, Orvil E. Dryfoos took his place. Sulzberger served as the chairman of the board from until his death in During this time he relinquished a number of duties to Dryfoos and his successor, Sulzberger's son, Arthur Ochs Punch Sulzberger, but maintained a measure of control over the paper. He continued to read the paper or have it read to him every day.
He continued to praise and criticize stories, columns, and decisions. Marian was a member of the board of directors of The New York Times Company for 14 years, Ruth was the publisher of The Chattanooga Times and was the director of The New York Times Company for 30 years, Judith received her medical degree from Columbia University, worked as a doctor, and served on the board of many institutions, and Arthur was publisher of The New York Times between and Sulzberger died in after a long illness. Upon his death, a number of tributes were printed in The Times written by friends, colleagues, and world leaders.

She was chosen to organize the files of the then publisher, Arthur Hays Sulzberger. According to the history of the archives written by an archivist at The Times, her assignment was to identify historical or biographical information, discard unnecessary material, and reorganize the files so that they could be used as an active centralized file of past and future material for all members of the Publisher's staff.
Until that time, the publisher's files were arranged chronologically and housed in filing cabinets in or near his office. Over the next two years, Sunshine read through Sulzberger's files, selected and integrated material, and separated it into two categories, material pertaining to Sulzberger named the Biographical File and material pertaining to The Times named the Subject File.
Biographical material was chiefly material of a personal nature relating to Sulzberger, including friendly correspondence and lunch appointments, and material covering a wide range of topics that could not be easily filed in the Subject series. Subject material was mainly anything relating to The Times or material on an easily identified topic that was filed under topical or geographical terms or by organization name. He created the department and requested executives, editors, and writers to contribute their records to the archives when they were no longer needed as working files.
His memorandum requested business files and any additional material pertaining to public activities that would give insight into the range of their contribution. The mission of the archives was to collect, select, organize, preserve and store materials documenting the history and activities of newspaper, of the company as a whole, and of its principal executives, editors and writers. The first ten years of the archives was mainly spent in collecting material and establishing record groups publishers, managing editors, other editors, business executives, major columnists and other writers, and some specific departments or "desks".
The next ten years were spent organizing and describing these record groups according to the scheme established by Lucille Sunshine. Over the years, there was a blurring of these distinctions and personal material was filed in the Subject series. Material relating to anniversaries, birthdays, property, and vacations were grouped together and filed in the Subject series.
The order of the records has been maintained and the inventories created by the archivists of The Times have been edited for content. The one major change made by the staff of the Manuscripts and Archives Division of the New York Public Library is the integration of material in the Book and Map Files into their original record groups.
Bound items such as photograph albums, scrapbooks, ledgers, and bound commemorative volumes were physically separated from their record group and filed with the Book File. Similarly, oversize items such as maps and architectural drawings were filed in the Map File. Cross references for "Photograph file" refer to a file created by The New York Times that is not yet available.

She strove to be smart and tough while at the same time stereotypically feminine and even coquettish. An interesting and worthy addition to any academic collection with a strong focus on journalism.
Summing Up: Recommended. Students at all levels; faculty; researchers. Porter was the first personal finance columnist who wrote a number of best-selling books on the same topic Lucht, who teaches journalism at Iowa State University, traces Porter from writing about finance amidst the Great Depression to her final years when her opinions carried great weight- she was regularly on the air, she edited a magazine, and she wrote her columns.
This is the first Porter biography. Porter, one of the most experienced and prolific financial writers of the day, was, shockingly, a woman. How could this have happened in a sphere that at that time was regarded as exclusively male terrain? The perpetrator of that incident-Sylvia Porter-carved a remarkable year career in a realm where only a few women had gone before, laying the groundwork for today's burgeoning personal finance genre. Porter into the reader's life, sharing her successes and challenges, and enlightening us as to the role this woman played in the lives of many women.
