About Fülöp Philipp Wodianer v. Vasarhely

The founder of the book merchant branch, Fülöp WODIANER (1820, Hódmezõvásárhely - 1899, Budapest), played a significant role in creating business-political publications and was one of the great publishing businessmen of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. He learned the printing trade in Pest, and worked in print shops in Pozsony and Vienna. In 1842 he became the printing director of a newspaper and in 1848 he was the printer in charge of Government publications as well as of the mint. In Pest in 1856 he opened a print shop and in 1861 founded the journal Magyarország ("Hungary") then in 1867 the Magyar Ujság ("Hungarian News"). He also created the Magyar Néplap ("Hungarian Folk News") featuring items of interest to peasants, small tradesmen and artisans. In 1874 bought a publishing house. His company grew to become a most influential newspaper and book publishing house, printing many Jewish titles and doing much to promote the Hebrew language and the Jewish press in general. Towards the end of his life, he and his sons received titles of nobility. One son, Arthur WODIANER (1860-1921) joined the company and established his name publishing school textbooks.
