In 1860, Henry Varnum Poor published his “History of Railroads and Canals of the United States.” A founder of the financial information industry, Mr. Poor was a proponent of “the investor’s right to know.” In 1941, Standard Statistics merged with Poor’s Publishing Company creating Standard & Poor’s. Standard & Poor’s history dates back to 1860. It was acquired by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. in 1966. Today, more than 150 years later, Standard & Poor’s is the pre-eminent global provider of financial market intelligence and is still delivering on that original mission.
