Affiliations: 1: Robert Bingame was born in 1889 in New York City and died in 1967 in Danbury, Connecticut. His obituary in The New York Times called him “an editor and prolific writer of verse, short stories, magazine articles and biographies.” He attended preparatory school in Morristown, New Jersey, and in 1913 graduated from Harvard College. He worked for a year on the staff of The Independent and from 1914 to 1926 was an editor in the publishing house of Charles Scribner's Sons, taking out time to serve in the First World War. From 1926 onward he was a free-lance writer, but served his country again during 1942–1943 in the Office of War Information. The following article is excerpted and adapted from chapter thirteen, “The Marriage of the Books,” in Endless Frontiers: The Story of McGraw-Hill, written by Burlingame and originally published by McGraw-Hill in 1959. Burlingame's other books include Inventors Behind the Inventor, General Billy Mitchell, Machines That Built America and Henry Ford. In all, he was the author of more than twenty books.
