Charles C. Shoemaker founded Penn Publishing Company in 1889. After the success of its elocution and recitation publications, Penn began to publish plays for amateurs and entertainment and education handbooks. In the early 1900s, Penn found its niche with the publication of boys' and girls' series books.
