Charles A. Madison, BOOK PUBLISHING IN AMERICA 497 (1966):

The year 1962 was for the firm one "of vigorously accelerated growth"--an increase in sales of 18.8 percent over 1961. Every department was growing fast. A program of expansion for the college department, the smallest of the textbook divisions, included a large number of new contracts and the launching of Harbinger Books, nonfiction reprints for college courses.
