Heinemann and William Heinemann[edit]

Where does Random House's "William Heinemann" imprint fit in? Did it split off at some point from the house described in this article? Or is it an unrelated company that happens to have been named in honour of William Heinemann? Or what? --Paul A 03:27, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

The article says that the imprint was sold to Doubleday in 1920. Doubleday was later sold to Bertelsmann in 1986 and then became a division of Random House. I'd guess the educational and non-educational halves of the imprint were split at some point with the educational portion being sold to Harcourt Education. --James 09:34, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
The external links are not to William Heinemann. There is no website for William Heinemann. I know because I emailed them about something and I received a response saying they are Greenwood-Heinemann.--User: Ellen Datlow10:31, 6 May 2008. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.220.113.48 (talk)

Potential source[edit]

The previews in Google books look like there is a lot of good information in here, but since it it only the preview snippets and not full text for context, I am hesitant to put any of the information in the article. Does anyone have access to the book? -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 15:23, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
