William Randolph Hearst was a powerful newspaper publisher from the 1880s to the 1950s. He was also at one time a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, produced movies from the 1910s to the 1930s, and was well-known for his extensive art and exotic animal collection, as well as the portrayal of his life in Citizen Kane. He also had a very long term affair and illegitimate child with Marion Davies (he never divorced his wife, but he lived openly with Davies in California, and also with his family back east)! Hearst passed away in 1951 at the age of 88.
