What is now known as Crain Communications Inc. was started in Louisville, Ky., in 1916 by G.D. Crain Jr., who continued to conduct its affairs until his death in 1973. He started with a staff of three people and two publications - Class, which was subsequently renamed Industrial Marketing, and which is still published by the company as Business Marketing, and Hospital Management, a magazine for hospital administrators, which was sold during the 1950s. The tiny staff moved to Chicago later in 1916. In 1930, Mr. Crain launched Advertising Age, the international newspaper of marketing, and the company was incorporated as Advertising Publications Inc. Subsequently, as its publishing interests broadened beyond the advertising and marketing field, the corporate name was changed to its present title. Crain has grown substantially from its modest beginnings, and now numbers 30 publications and a variety of other services.
