What professional organization held its inaugural meeting the year before the first Kentucky Derby and has been in existence longer than the American Bar Association? If the tale is not apocryphal (no one knows for sure), what magazine did the National Geographic Society pattern its first publication after? What popular naval history magazine debuted in 1986? And what publisher went out on a limb with first books by unknown novelists—Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October and Stephen Coonts' Flight of the Intruder ?
