Sheed and Ward was a publishing house founded in London in 1926 by Catholic activists Frank Sheed and Maisie Ward. The head office was moved to New York in 1933. In 1973, Sheed and Ward was acquired by the Universal Press Syndicate; the company was used as the base of the publisher Andrews McMeel.[1] The Sheed and Ward name and backlist were later divested.[2] The company was owned by the National Catholic Reporter from 1986 to 1998, when it was sold to the Priests of the Sacred Heart.[3] The United States assets were acquired by Rowman & Littlefield in 2002, and the United Kingdom assets by the Continuum International Publishing Group,[4] which has since been subsumed into Bloomsbury Publishing.

The house published a number of major Catholic literary figures of the Interbellum and mid-twentieth century, including G. K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, Christopher Dawson, Vincent McNabb, Leo J. Trese, Ronald Knox and Etienne Gilson.

The company archives of the New York office from 1933 to 1977 are kept at the University of Notre Dame.[5]
