Company Profile
OUP opened a New York office (now OUP USA) in 1896, primarily as a distribution branch, but by the 1920s began publishing books of its own. Its very first publication, The Life of Sir William Osler, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1926. Since that time, we have been privileged to publish a multitude of award-winning books, including 14 more Pulitzer Prize winners.
