    Corporate history

    McGraw Hill Financial traces its history back to 1888 when James H. McGraw, co-founder of the company, purchased the American Journal of Railway Appliances. He continued to add further publications, eventually establishing The McGraw Publishing Company in 1899. His co-founder John A. Hill had also produced several technical and trade publications and in 1902 formed his own business, The Hill Publishing Company.

    In 1909 both men, having known each other''s interests, agreed upon an alliance and combined the book departments of their publishing companies into The McGraw-Hill Book Company. John Hill served as President, with James McGraw as Vice-President. 1917 saw the merger of the remaining parts of each business into The McGraw-Hill Publishing Company, Inc. In 1986, McGraw-Hill bought out competitor The Economy Company, then the United States'' largest publisher of educational material. The buyout made McGraw-Hill the largest educational publisher in the United States.

    In 1979 McGraw-Hill Publishing Company purchased Byte magazine from its owner/publisher Virginia Williamson who then became a vice-president of McGraw-Hill.

    McGraw-Hill Publishing Company, Inc became The McGraw-Hill Companies in 1995, as part of a corporate rebranding.

    In 2007, McGraw-Hill launched an online study network, GradeGuru.com, which gave McGraw-Hill an opportunity to connect directly with its end users, the students. The site closed on April 29, 2012.

    On October 3, 2011, McGraw-Hill announced it was selling its entire television station group to The E.W. Scripps Company for $212 million. The sale was completed on December 30, 2011. It had been involved in broadcasting since 1972, when it purchased four television stations from a division of Time Inc.

    On November 26, 2012, McGraw-Hill announced it was selling its entire education division to Apollo Global Management for $2.5 billion. On March 22, 2013 it announced it had completed the sale and the proceeds were for $2.4 billion cash.

    On May 1, 2013, shareholders of McGraw-Hill voted to change the company''s name to McGraw Hill Financial.
