The Washington Herald was an American daily newspaper in Washington, D.C., from October 8, 1906, to January 31, 1939.
Clinton T. Brainard, president of the McClure Newspaper Syndicate, bought the paper in 1913. William Randolph Hearst, who already owned the Washington Times, took over the paper in November 1922. Though he consolidated the operations of the papers, they still published separately except for a joint Sunday edition.
The Herald was completely merged with the Washington Times in 1939. On February 1, 1939, the paper became known as the Washington Times-Herald. In 1954, it was purchased and merged with The Washington Post.
