Scribner, family name of U.S. book publishers. Charles Scribner (1821–71) co-founded the publishing company in New York City in 1846. His 3 sons served in turn as president of Charles Scribner's Sons, as the firm became known, but Charles (1854–1930) held the position the longest, from 1879 to 1928, during which time it published such major U.S. and British authors as Henry James, Ernest Hemingway, Ring Lardner, and Rudyard Kipling. The founder's grandson Charles (1890–1952) and great-grandson Charles (1921– ) also served as company presidents.
