    1856 · The Largest Map Company in the World

    Age 28

    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.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Mackley House in Sudbury (Derbyshire). The placename derives from an Old English personal name Macca + Old English lēah ‘wood, woodland clearing’.

    Probably also an Americanized form of Swiss German Mägli (see Magley ) or of some other similar (like-sounding) German surname (compare Mackler ).
