Editor, owner and publisher of the New York Herald Tribune. Reid grew up in New York City in a wealthy, aristocratic family with his father being United States Minister to France. Prior to entering Yale, Reid studied at the University of Bonn in Germany. He graduated from Yale University in 1904 and went on to earn his law degree in 1907. After graduation he went to work for his father, at what was then the New York Tribune. His father died in 1912 while in England and as a result Reid became editor of the Tribune. In 1924 Reid purchased the New York Herald combining it with the Tribune, with the newspaper now named the "New York Herald Tribune". The start was slow for the newspaper taking almost eight years to turn a profit, however under his leadership the Tribune's circulation grew enormously, and as a result a large foreign staff centered in Paris was created. In the early 1920's Reid bought a house at 4 Rue de Chevreuse in Paris, and it was there that he would spend the majority of his time, and conduct much of the business of the newspaper.
