  Chicago Tribune
Led by a series of ambitious editors and publishers, the Tribune was one of a small handful of major American daily papers published continuously from the mid-1800s into the twenty-first century.
Founded in 1847, the Chicago Daily Tribune was transformed by the arrival in 1855 of editor and co-owner Joseph Medill, who turned the paper into one of the leading voices of the new Republican Party.
By the end of the twentieth century, when the newspaper's parent company (the Tribune Company) was a national media giant that employed close to six thousand Chicago-area residents, the future of traditional print dailies was uncertain.

 Chicago Tribune Tower, Chicago, Illinois (Hood and Howells) - American Architecture
The Tribune Company's 1922 competition to design the "world's most beautiful office building" as its headquarters captured the interest of an international audience of architects, business leaders, and the public at large.
The 263 entries for the design of the new Tribune tower represented a broad constellation of approaches to the skyscraper at a time of transition.
The award was very much criticized at the time as the gothic design went against the modernizing trend set by the Chicago School and against the ideas of the more functional European architecture, later known as the International Style, which reduced decorations to the bare minimum.
