In 1962, publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst merged the 58-year-old Los Angeles Examiner with the less successful afternoon paper Herald-Express and added a Sunday addition (Los Angeles Times honcho Norman Chandler announced its own afternoon paper, the Mirror, would also fold).

The Herald-Express was published out of its downtown headquarters at 1111 South Broadway. Completed in 1915, the two-story building was designed by Julia Morgan.

Citing a demand for higher pay and more fringe benefits, striking unions threatened the paper in December 1967. In spite of walkouts, daily and weekend editions continued (distributed by non-union personnel).

After being put up for sale in the summer of 1989, the 86 year-old paper published its final issue that November. Circulation had dropped to around 238,392, while The Times was thriving with over a million.

Nevertheless, what remains is a treasure trove of original Herald-Examiner Sunday magazine covers and a bounty of vintage advertising.
