They also published a variety of fiction titles: Frank Heller detective/mystery series; children's books and gift volumes.

    He died in 1909 and was succeeded by T. Irving Crowell. In 1919, Crowell purchased Collier Publishing. Irving Crowell retired in 1937, replaced by third generation Robert L.
