NEW YORK -- Theodore Newhouse, an expert in newspaper management and production who helped build one of the world's largest news organizations, died Saturday after a long illness. He was 95.

Mr. Newhouse was associate publisher of the Newhouse newspaper group and, with brothers Samuel I. and Norman Newhouse, built and operated the family-owned enterprise.

The Newhouse holdings include 26 newspapers in 22 cities; the Conde Nast magazine group; the Sunday newspaper supplement Parade magazine; and interests in cable television programming and cable systems serving a million homes.

The Newhouse brothers helped develop such newspaper management policies as local autonomy for publishers and editors of group-owned newspapers. Samuel Newhouse died in 1979, and Norman in 1988.
