History

Princeton University Press was founded in 1905 by a recent Princeton graduate, Whitney Darrow, with financial support from another Princetonian, Charles Scribner II. Darrow and Scribner purchased the equipment and assumed the operations of two already existing local publishers, that of the Princeton Alumni Weekly and the Princeton Press. The new press printed both local newspapers, university documents, The Daily Princetonian, and later added book publishing to its activities.BOOK, Axtell, James, The Making of Princeton University: From Woodrow Wilson to the Present, Princeton University Press, 2006, Princeton,weblink Beginning as a small, for-profit printer, Princeton University Press was reincorporated as a nonprofit in 1910.JOURNAL, The New Princeton University Press, Publisher's Weekly, 79, 22, 2233–2234, New York, June 3, 1911,weblink 16 July 2017, Since 1911, the press has been headquartered in a purpose-built gothic-style building designed by Ernest Flagg.
