Product Descriptions

Grey House Publishing launched its first directory The Directory of Mail Order Catalogs in 1981, the year it was founded by its President, Richard Gottlieb, and Publisher, Leslie Mackenzie. Since then Grey House has published over 80 titles, as well as countless annual or semi-annual editions of many of these directories and reference works that subscribers and libraries have come to rely as standards in their fields.

By the early ‘90s, three clear product lines began to emerge – Business, Health and Education. Each area soon had 8-10 titles, and with such well-known works as the 3-volume Food & Beverage Market Place, formerly the 100+ year old Thomas Food Industry Register, The Complete Directory for People with Disabilities and Educators Resource Directory.

Grey House acquired Universal Reference Publications in 1999 and Toucan Valley Publications in 2000, adding such highly regarded titles as America’s Top-Rated Cities, The Comparative Guide to American Suburbs, and Profiles of America. This helped launch another distinct product line – Statistics, Economics & Demographics.
