Motion Picture Herald
The paper's origins go further back two decades. In 1915, a Chicago printing company launched a film publication as a regional trade paper for exhibitors in the Midwest and known as Exhibitors Herald. Publisher Martin Quigley bought the paper and over the following two decades developed the Exhibitors Herald into an important American national trade paper for the US film industry.
In 1917, Quigley acquired and merged another publication MOTOGRAPHY. into his magazine. In 1927, he further acquired and merged the magazine The Moving Picture World and began publishing it as Exhibitors' Herald and Moving Picture World, which was later shortened to the more manageable title, Exhibitors' Herald World.
