About Us

Tools for Active Learning...with Personal Service and Sensible Prices

Morton Publishing was founded in 1977 by Doug Morton out of his home in Denver, CO.  Morton was originally a custom publisher but went on to produce best-selling First Aid, Health, Physical Education and Recreation books.

As the company and industry changed, Morton began to focus on lab manuals and photographic atlases for the life and physical sciences, and now publishes best-selling titles in anatomy & physiology, microbiology, and general biology,
as well as chemistry and astronomy.

Morton is also a leading custom publisher, creating affordable lab course materials specific to instructor needs.

Morton's Mission

Morton Publishing Company's core business is to identify, develop, market and distribute higher education course materials (tools for active learning) in print and electronical formats. These materials are distinguished from our competitors by our commitment to the quality and production value of our content, our sensible pricing for all customers, and through our attention to building personal relationships with our customers.
