"In 1915, after working as a page at Doubleday and with publisher Mitchell Kennerley, Alfred A. Knopf accepted a $5,000 advance from his father to begin an eponymous publisher. The company’s first office was located in New York’s Candler Building, on West 42nd Street, and in addition to Knopf himself, its employees included two administrative staffers and an editorial assistant named Blanche Wolfe, Knopf’s fiancée.
Today, Knopf is one of the most venerable literary publishers in the country. In its 100-year history, the company, which is now part of Penguin Random House, has had only three people at the helm—Knopf himself, Robert Gottlieb, and current editor-in-chief Sonny Mehta. "
