The Dial Press traces its roots to 1880 and the founding of The Dial, its monthly literary magazine, in 1924[1].  In 1963, Dell Publishing Company acquired 60% of the Dial Press, with it becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Dell in 1969.  In 1976 Doubleday bought Dell Publishing and the children's division of Dial Press (Dial Books for Young Readers) was sold to E. P. Dutton, Inc[2].
