John F. Blair, Publisher, is celebrating 60 years!

John F. BlairThis month, we're kicking off our birthday festivities. In 1954, 50-year-old John Fries Blair had already led a full life. He had a law degree from Harvard and an M.A. in literature from Columbia. He had taught college English, been an editor at UNC Press, and was assistant director of UNC's Institute of Government.When most people would be planning their retirement, Blair decided to open a publishing house.

In a 1974 speech, Blair said, "When I announced my intention of forming an independent publishing house in Winston-Salem, many people told me I had a screw loose. But I believe that the best days of independent publishing are still to come."

For 60 years, John F. Blair, Publisher, has been publishing great books about the South. The staff intends to carry on John Blair's legacy for another 60 years.
