Frank Howard Dodd
He prepared at Bloomfield Academy to enter Yale, but instead went into the New York publishing house of his father, M. W. Dodd. To this business he succeeded in 1870, forming a partnership with Edward S. Mead. Six years later Bleecker Van Wagenen joined the firm and the name was changed to Dodd, Mead and Company. Beside publishing books in all departments of literature, the firm, under F. H. Dodd's supervision, founded The Bookman in 1895 and in 1902 The New International Encyclopædia which succeeded the International Cyclopædia of earlier years.
Dodd was president of the American Publishers' Association for a number of years and had various civic and philanthropic interests, being largely instrumental, as president of the Fourth Avenue Association, in the business development of that street. He was a member of the New York Chamber of Commerce and a trustee for the New York Kindergarten Association and the Greenwich Savings Bank. He was a member of the Century Club and City Club of New York City, and the National Club of London.
