Gregg decided he wanted to publish scholarly reprints of his own and initially focused on reprinting classics of American literature in runs of 250 to 500 copies for the US academic library market. His first program, Americans in Fiction, included 70 out-of-copyright titles selected by American literature professor Clarence Gohdes. The series was sold as a set, but individual titles could be purchased separately. Charles Gregg sold Gregg Press to ITT Corp. in 1972, and the operation was moved to Boston, becoming a division of ITT's library reference publishing company, G. K. Hall & Co. James F. Koehlinger, General Manager of Gregg, moved to Boston with the company to oversee its transition for a year. Thomas T. Beeler was hired as editor of Gregg Press in Boston in June 1972. Beeler developed a Library Reference reprint series for Gregg and oversaw the publication of the already-contracted American Revolutionary Series. (en)
