Donohue, Henneberry & Co. (1871-1960s)
Founded in 1861 as Cox and Donohue, bookbinders. Shortly after, the firm's style was changed to Donohue, Wilson & Henneberry, and about 1880 to Donohue & Henneberry, duing which period the concern entered the printing as well as the binding business and started publishing books.

Donohue bought out Henneberry in 1903 and began using M.A. Donohue & Company imprint. Died 1915. Company continued (to 1960s) at 711 South Dearborn. (DLB 49). This appears not to be entirely correct: in the 1899 Chicago Lakeside directory, Michael A. Donohue is listed as a principal in Donohue, Henneberry & Co. In 1900 and after, there is no entry for Donohue, Henneberry & Co., but in the classified portion of the 1901 directory, the M.A. Donohue & Company is listed under bookbinders at 407-429 Dearborn and described as "successors to Donohue Brothers" while in the alphabetical listing its entry reads "successors to Donohue and Henneberry, publishers, printers and binders." M.A. Donohue & Company's original object in publishing was to issue children's books and set. In the early 1900's the firm decided to deal exclusively in children's books. It is probably the oldest juvenile publishing firm in the country which throughout its history has been controlled by one family. [from The Lucille Project]
