George Palmer Putnam (1814-1872)

George Palmer Putnam was a publisher and historian. At age fifteen he moved from Maine to New York and began working on what was to become his universal history, "The World's Progress" (1833), later revised as "Putnam's Handbook of Universal History." During the war his publishing business underwent difficult times but Putnam was rescued by his close friend, Washington Irving. After a brief stint in President Johnson's administration he returned to publishing and founded the G. P. Putnam & Son firm in 1866.
