The Chicago American was a newspaper company that began publishing in 1900 and changed names several times before folding in 1974. It was called the Herald-Examiner between 1918 and 1939. “Buy American products,” was a campaign the Herald-Examiner and other papers ran during the Great Depression telling readers to spend their money on American goods instead of foreign products.
