Education[edit] Chandler attended Stanford, where he was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity (Sigma Rho chapter).


The Los Angeles Times[edit] After dropping out of Stanford, Chandler started working at the newspaper as a secretary to his father, Harry Chandler, who had been its publisher since 1917. Norman Chandler became general manager in 1936, president in 1941 and at his father’s death in 1944, the third editor of the newspaper. The Times prospered under Chandler, and gained regional, as well as national, prominence. In 1947 it became the largest-circulation newspaper in Los Angeles, and in 1961 the Sunday paper had a circulation of more than one million. Chandler retired as publisher in 1960, leaving the job to his son Otis Chandler, but remained as chairman of the board from 1961-1968.


Civic Benefactor[edit] He funded the construction of the Hollywood Palladium at a cost of $1.6 million in 1940.[1] His wife, Dorothy Buffum Chandler, led Los Angeles' cultural revitalization in the 50s and 60s, first with the restoration of the Hollywood Bowl, then with the construction of the Los Angeles Music Center (the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Mark Taper Forum and the Ahmanson Theatre).
