Sheed and Ward was a publishing house founded in London in 1926 by Catholic activists Frank Sheed and Maisie Ward. The head office was moved to New York in 1933. The United States assets were acquired by Rowman & Littlefield in 2002, and the United Kingdom assets by the Continuum International Publishing Group,[1] which has since been subsumed into Bloomsbury Publishing.

The house published a number of major Catholic literary figures of the Interbellum and mid-twentieth century, including G. K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, Christopher Dawson, Vincent McNabb and Etienne Gilson.

The company archives of the New York office from 1933 to 1977 are kept at the University of Notre Dame.[2]
