On this day in 1893, Columbia University Press was established as a separately incorporated not-for profit organization affiliated with Columbia College, and we’ve been publishing strong ever since! At the time, the trustees felt that it was “not expedient for the College, as a corporation, to undertake the business of printing.” In 2016, the Press became a full-fledged unit of the University within the office of the Provost.
In celebration of this great occasion, we’re offering you—our readers—a chance to win some 125 memorabilia. To enter the drawing, simply submit your e-mail at the end of the quiz below. The winner will be contacted on Friday, June 15, 2018.
