SAMUEL I. NEWHOUSE, SR.

Entrepreneur • Innovator • Visionary

At the age of 13, Samuel I. Newhouse was an office boy for a lawyer in Bayonne, N.J. At 15, he was the lawyer’s office manager and accountant. At 16, he was publisher of a small daily newspaper the lawyer had acquired in payment of a debt. At 21, he was half owner of the paper and had himself become a lawyer. By the age of 30, he was sole owner of the Staten Island Advance and on his way to becoming a world media giant.

Newhouse’s entrepreneurial spirit lives on within the walls of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, where the next generation media companies are being born.
