Wikipedia, viewed October 16, 2019 (access point: Frank Munsey; Frank Andrew Munsey (21 August 1854--22 December 1925); American newspaper and magazine publisher and author; born in Mercer, Maine, but spent most of his life in New York City; credited with the idea of using new high-speed printing presses to print on inexpensive, untrimmed, pulp paper in order to mass-produce affordable (typically ten-cent) magazines. This innovation, known as pulp magazines, became an entire industry unto itself and made Munsey quite wealthy. Munsey died in New York City on December 22, 1925. After his death, the Frank A. Munsey Company continued publishing various magazines, including pulp detective fiction, such as Flynn's Detective Fiction and All-Story Love. In 1942 they sold out to rival pulp publisher Popular Publications)
