About the author (1990)

Max Hall, who was Harvard University Press's first Editor for the Social Sciences (1960-1973), has had access to all Press records and numerous private University documents, and has been able to interview many of the participants in the story, from Director Dumas Malone on. He has produced a narrative of interest not only to the Harvard community and Press authors but also to anyone concerned with printing and publishing history and the role of the university press in the advancement of knowledge.
