Biography

Boston Globe

The Boston Globe is an American daily newspaper based in Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 1872 by Charles H. Taylor, it was privately held until 1973, when it went public as Affiliated Publications. The company was acquired in 1993 by The New York Times Company; two years later Boston.com was established as the newspaper's online edition. In 2011, a BostonGlobe.com subscription site was launched. In 2013, the newspaper and websites were purchased by John W. Henry, a businessman whose other holdings include the Boston Red Sox and Liverpool FC

The Boston Globe has been awarded 23 Pulitzer Prizes since 1966, and its chief print rival is the Boston Herald.

The 2004 Red Sox are champions because they engineered the greatest comeback in baseball history when they won four straight games against the hated New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series. It was a baseball epic, an event for the ages that put the Sox into a World Series that was profoundly anticlimactic. From the writers, editors, and photographers of the award-winning Boston Globe comes the official 2004 Special Commemorative Book.
