History[edit] Publisher Donald Fine founded Arbor House in Westminster, Maryland in 1969, using a $5,000 loan.[3] Fine was vice president of Dell Publishing and a co-founder of Delacorte Press, before starting his own business.[3] Arbor House was acquired by the Hearst Corporation in 1978 for $1.5 million.[3] Industry officials had previously speculated that Arbor House would merge with William Morrow & Company, another company in the Hearst Corporation, unless it published a number of best selling books. Arbor House published Elmore Leonard's Bandits and Sydney Biddle Barrows' The Mayflower Madam, which were best sellers, but in January 1987, Arbor House reduced its publishing list from 70 books per annum to approximately 40 books.[2] In June 1987, it was announced that Arbor House would become an imprint of William Morrow & Company from January 1988. Arbor House's employees transferred to William Morrow & Company.[2]
