Antioch Publishing Company


Antioch Publishing began as a result of its founders' creativity and aversion to waste. In 1926 Ernest Morgan and Walter Kahoe were students at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Antioch's press, like many print shops, generated barrels of paper cutoffs. Distressed with this situation, the two students decided to turn waste into opportunity. In exchange for janitorial work and as a part of the Antioch College program of work and study, they used the shop's press after hours to print decorative bookplates on strips of waste paper. To sell his product to dealers, Ernest Morgan took to the road, hitchhiking his way around the region. With permission from the college, the two students named their venture The Antioch Bookplate Company. (The company has never actually been an Antioch College department or subsidiary, nor has it ever been officially affiliated with the college.) Eventually Walter Kahoe sold his interest in the company to Ernest Morgan (for two hundred dollars), but Ernest continued to attend college by day and print bookplates by night. Relatives and friends pitched in to help him with his fledgling business. Over the years the company grew. Ernest's youngest son Lee joined the company in 1968, and during the next two decades the line expanded into new book-related products such as tasseled bookmarks and journals. In the 1980's the company was renamed the Antioch Publishing Company and established operations in Canada and the United Kingdom. Antioch continued to expand in 1985 with the purchase of the Holes-Webway photo album company. Antioch Publishing is now the arm of The Antioch Company which continues the tradition of providing quality, variety and beauty in book accessories, gift and stationery products. From a two-person operation utilizing a borrowed press, The Antioch Bookplate Company has grown into a substantial business with hundreds of employee-owners and multiple units around the world. Through decades of growth the company has kept alive the community-oriented spirit and human-centered values of its founder through recycling programs, a charitable foundation and employee profit-sharing plans.
