Adolph Simon Ochs (March 12, 1858 - April 8, 1935) was an American Jewish reporter of Bavarian background, who purchased The New York Times in 1896, and rescued it from near oblivion, increasing its readership from 9,000 at the time of his purchase to 780,000 by the 1920s.
His daughter, Iphigene Bertha Ochs, married Arthur Hays Sulzberger , who became publisher of the Times after his father-in-law. Her son Arthur Ochs "Punch" Sulzberger also became publisher of the Times.
