W. M. Kiplinger (1891–1967), a former AP economics reporter, founded the eponymous Washington, D.C. company in 1920. With his son Austin H. Kiplinger (1918–2015) he co-founded Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine in 1947. Grandson Knight A. Kiplinger continued the dynasty until the 2019 sale to Dennis Publishing.
Kiplinger also provides custom publishing services to a variety of companies and associations.
