Quick Reference

Founded in 1855, was the first daily paper to be issued in London at a penny. It enjoyed a larger circulation than any other English newspaper, and in its early days, with T. Hunt as assistant editor, its political views were Radical. After a period of decline in the early 20th cent., circulation recovered in the 1930s; in 1937 the Morning Post was amalgamated. The Sunday Telegraph was added in 1961. Among famous members of its staff have been G. A. Sala, Sir E. Arnold, and Edward Dicey (1832–1911).
