BiographyHistory

Longmans, Green and Company was established in New York in 1887 as a distributor for the English parent firm of Longmans, Green. It soon began to publish in its own right, in the areas of education, religion and history. From the 1920s the firm also published a large volume of fiction, concentrating on juvenile fiction and adventure. By 1936 the company was the seventh largest publisher in the United States. In 1937 the company published Errol Flynn's autobiographical work Beam Ends.

Charles J. Mills and his descendants directed the company throughout its existence. The Longmans, Green and Company imprint disappeared in 1961 when the company merged wth the David McKay Company, which did not continue to distribute English Longmans titles for long. Longmans Incorporated was established in New York in 1973 to fulfill this function.
