New York University Press has been committed to publishing high-quality works since its inception in 1916. In 1952, the Press began to focus solely on scholarly books with the assistance of then director Filmore Hyde. During the 1960s the Press published one of its most well-known titles, The Collected Writings of Walt Whitman. The 1980s and 1990s saw the Press grow in several directions, publishing works in psychology, gender studies, law, African American studies, Asian American studies, and Latino/a studies.
