After receiving Sir Roderick Jones's resignation, the Reuter board immediately appointed Samuel Storey as chairman as proposed by James Henderson and seconded by Alexander Ewing. Under the reshaped board, Christopher Chancellor and Walton Cole led Reuters together throughout the later years of the Second World War and during the post-war period. The position of Reuters in North America during the 1940s and 1950s was less volatile than in South America, but still difficult. The Paris office in the Place de la Bourse was the largest overseas Reuter office in the immediate post-war period. Later, the commercial services, which had been seriously disrupted in Europe and the Far East, slowly revived after the war. Furthermore, publication of the history — Reuter's Century Graham Storey, a young Cambridge historian — was part of the hundredth anniversary celebrations of the agency.
