Rinehart & Company, an American publishing company, was the successor to Farrar & Rinehart, Inc. In 1946, following the departure of John C. Farrar, the company was renamed Rinehart & Company. The brothers Stanley M. Rinehart, Jr. and Frederick R. Rinehart continued to operate the company until its merger with Henry Holt and Company and the John C. Winston Company in 1960, to form Holt, Rinehart and Winston. The Rinehart brothers were the sons of the famed mystery writer, Mary Roberts Rinehart, whose books were published by the company. Indeed, Rinehart had supported her sons by leaving Doubleday, Doran when they (with Farrar) established Farrar & Rinehart in 1929; her bestselling mysteries were a mainstay of the new imprint.
