1856 · The Largest Map Company in the World

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 and Irish (of Norman origin): perhaps a nickname from a derivative of Old French tirer ‘to pull’, in the same sense as French Tirand ‘one who pulls on the reins’, hence ‘obstinate, stubborn’. This name may have become confused with Turrell . A branch of this Anglo-Norman family has been in Ireland since the 12th century. Its name has been Gaelicized as Tirial.

English: habitational name from Tirril (Cumbria), which derives from Old Norse tyri ‘resinous wood’ + erg ‘shieling’.
