Funk & Wagnalls was an American publisher known for its reference works. Funk & Wagnalls was founded by Isaac Kaufman Funk in 1875 as I.K. Funk & Company. Adam Willis Wagnalls joined the firm as a partner in 1877, and the name was changed to Funk & Wagnalls Company. During its early years, Funk & Wagnalls Company published religious books. The publication of The Literary Digest in 1890 marked a shift to publishing of general reference dictionaries and encyclopedias. The firm published The Standard Dictionary of the English Language in 1894 and Funk & Wagnalls Standard Encyclopedia in 1912. The last printing of Funk & Wagnalls New Encyclopedia was in 1997; the encyclopedia exists today only as an electronic reference, Funk & Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia, provided to educational institutions by the World Almanac Education Group.
