Description: The development of McGraw-Hill, Inc. and its part in educational, industrial, and technical development in the U.S. and abroad are traced in a series of interviews beginning with the lives of James H. McGraw (1860-1948) and John A. Hill (1858-1912). Associates recall the career of each as a publisher of trade and technical magazines. Others deal with the merger of the book publishing activities of the two companies as the McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1909, and the purchase of the Hill interest in trade magazines by McGraw to form the McGraw-Hill Publishing Company in 1916. Interviews continue the story of the company's expansion through the acquisition of the F. W. Dodge Corporation, 1961, which brought the firm into the field of information services, the purchase of such periodicals as HOUSE & HOME and MODERN PACKAGING, and the acquisition of the Webster Publishing Co.
