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.

    Name Meaning


    nickname from Middle English, Old French burel, borel (also birel) ‘reddish brown’, referring perhaps to complexion or hair color. This was occasionally used by Normans as a personal name, perhaps a nickname substituted for the personal name. The word also denoted a coarse woollen cloth of this color, so the surname may sometimes refer to dress, or it may be a nickname for a maker of the cloth, a bureller.
