The International Herald Tribune Tuesday became The International New York Times.

Prior to the Internet, the newspaper was virtually the only American newspaper widely available in foreign countries. It began in 1935 as The New York Herald Tribune's European Edition.

It originally was written for Americans living in Paris.

When the Times and The Washington Post jointly purchased the paper in 1967 to keep it afloat, after its New York parent went bust, it was renamed The International Herald Tribune.

The 126-year-old newspaper — edited in Paris, New York, and Hong Kong and printed daily in cities around the globe — has been owned outright by the Times since 2003.

With the rebranding, The Times aims to make inroads in the British media market and elsewhere outside the United States, partly to counter the London-based Guardian newspaper, whose website has established a presence among liberal readers in the US.
