About George Randolph Hearst, Sr.

George Randolph Hearst, Sr. was the eldest son of William Randolph Hearst. Though he never held a title higher than Vice-President at the Hearst Corporation, he was listed above many with higher-sounding titles when executives were listed in the company's publications. One of the five family trustees of the trust established under his father's will (which made sure that eight non-family trustees would have majority control), he was able to secure a seat on the corporation's board for his son George Randolph Hearst, Jr. in the 1950s. After his death, his son succeeded him as a trustee, and has since become chairman of the corporation's board.
