    1856 · The Largest Map Company in the World

    Age 31

    William Rand opened a small printing shop in Chicago. Doing most of the work himself for the first two years he decided to hire some help. Rand Hired Andrew McNally, an Irish Immigrant, to work in his shop. After doing business with the Chicago Tribune, Rand and McNally were hired to run the Tribune's entire printing operation. Years later, Rand and McNally established Rand McNally & Co after purchasing the Tribune's printing business. They focused mainly on printing tickets, complete railroad guides and timetables for the booming railroad industry around the city. What made the company successful was the detailed maps of roadways, along with directions to certain places. Rand McNally was the first major map publisher to embrace a system of numbered highways and erected many of the roadside highway signs that have been adopted by state and federal highway authorities. The company is still making and updating the world maps that are looked at every day.

    History: The Greevers trace their origin to Philip Greever, born in the mid 1740s probably in Germany (or, alternatively, in MD to Philip Ernst Gruber, an earlier immigrant from Germany), who in the second half of the 18th century came to VA and settled in Washington County. In VA he married Margaret Bosang, the daughter of David Bosang, who died in 1777 and whose will mentions Philip Gruber, Jr, as his son-in-law.
