Warder Norton and Mary D. Herter Norton first published lectures delivered at the
People’s Institute, the adult education division of New York City’s Cooper Union. The
firm soon expanded their program beyond the Institute, publishing books by celebrated
academics from America and abroad. By mid-century, the two major pillars of Norton’s
publishing program—trade books and college texts—were firmly established. In the 1950s,
the Norton family transferred control of the company to its employees, and today—with a
staff of four hundred and a comparable number of trade, college, and professional titles
published each year—W. W. Norton & Company stands as the largest and oldest publish-
ing house owned wholly by its employees.
