The Dial magazine founded a book publisher, The Dial Press, in 1924. The publishing house survived, and, by the 1960s, Dial was jointly owned by Richard Baron and Dell Publishing; E. L. Doctorow was editor-in-chief. Best-selling authors included James Baldwin and Vance Bourjaily. When Doubleday acquired Dell, the children's division of Dial Press was sold to E. P. Dutton. Dutton was bought by New American Library, which in turn became a part of the Penguin Group, a division of Pearson PLC.
