Penn Press First Incorporated 122 Years Ago Today

On March 26, 1890, the University of Pennsylvania Press was incorporated with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.Within a decade, the University of Pennsylvania Press imprint began to appear on scholarly publications. One of the Press's first books was the landmark The Philadelphia Negro: A Social Study, by African American reformer, scholar, and social critic W.E.B. Du Bois. That book remains on the Penn Press list to this day.
