|News, The Times, Tuesday, Mar 03, 1925; pg. 14; Issue 43900; col C|
The Sunday newspaper The People has been taken over by a new company controlled by Odhams Press Limited. It was founded in 1881 as a democratic Conservative organ by a combination headed by Sir William Madge and Sir George Armstrong. It was the first Conservative penny Sunday paper. In 1913 Sir William Madge and his family became the sole proprietors. Mr. J. S. Elias, managing director of Odhams Press, stated yesterday that his firm were taking control from the next issue. It would remain, he said, the independent organ of the Conservative â€œman in the streetâ€.
