About John Randolph Hearst

John Randolph Hearst was an American business executive and the third son of publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst.

He was said by some to have the most executive talent among the sons of William Randolph Hearst, and like his brothers worked for the Hearst Corporation.

Any question of his rivaling the non-family executives who constituted a majority of the trustees of his father's will, however, was rendered moot by his untimely death. He left four children, including John Randolph Hearst, Jr., a company executive and director who today represents this branch of the family among the trustees, and the reclusive William Randolph Hearst II, said by Forbes to be living under an assumed name, perhaps escaping confusion with uncle William Randolph Hearst, Jr. and cousin William Randolph Hearst III.
