In 1950 it was changed to NY Telegram & Sun. The Telegram bought out the Sun. I know because my father was advertising director of the Sun. "Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus." I doubt anyone on here remembers that.

If I remember correctly, the NY Sun was the home of Don Marquis and the famous "Archie the Cockroach" who wrote about, among other things, Mehitabel the cat in daily collumns famous for only having lowercase letters 

If anyone on here remembers the "Yes, Virginia, there is a santa clause" when it was published they either are a vampire, a time traveller or otherwise really super annuated (I believe that was published back in the 1890's).  On the other hand the story itself has been quoted and published a lot, especially around Christmas.
