Fitzroy Dearborn was an American publisher.


Fitzroy Dearborn Publishers was founded in 1994 by Daniel Kirkpatrick and George Walsh. The company was a publisher of academic library reference titles with offices in London and Chicago. It was acquired by the UK-based Taylor & Francis Group as an imprint of Routledge Reference in 2002.[1] Taylor & Francis itself subsequently merged with Informa plc.

At the time of its sale, the company had a backlist of 350 titles, many of them award-winning.


The name of the company was derived from the districts of London and Chicago in which its offices were located, Fitzrovia and Dearborn respectively.
