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 merged with the Times on February 1, 1939, with the combined publication becoming known as the Washington Times-Herald. In 1954, the Times-Herald was purchased by and merged with The Washington Post.
The Washington Herald appears as a fictional newspaper in the 1993 film The Pelican Brief, in The X Files (3x15) 1996, the 1996 film Eraser, and in the 2013 political drama series House of Cards. It is used in John Feinstein's book series featuring child reporters, including Last Shot, Cover Up, and Vanishing Act.
