About Us

"For what it's worth, Random Hall was originally going to be named "Random House." Dean Wadleigh & I sent a joint letter to Bennett Cerf, then head of Random House Publishers, inviting him to the dedication ceremony. We received a "cease & desist" type letter from Random House legal folks. It became Random Hall -- named, of course, in honor and memory of J. Arthur Random."
