History as found on Wikipedia
Dex One Corporation was formed in February 2010. It was previously the R. H. Donnelley Company, which was founded in 1886 by Reuben H. Donnelley, son of RR Donnelley founder Richard R. Donnelley, as The Chicago Directory Company. Donnelley primarily contracted with The Chicago Telephone Company to publish telephone directories for Chicago Telephone customers. In 1906, however, Donnelley would venture outside Chicago, contracting with Bell System firms such as New York Telephone, Wisconsin Telephone, and Cincinnati Suburban Telephone Co.
In 1917, The Reuben H. Donnelley Company was incorporated and moved to New York City, retaining some offices in Chicago. In 1925, Donnelley died, leaving behind his company which continued to contract with the Bell System to publish telephone directories.
In 1961, Dun & Bradstreet Corp merged with R.H. Donnelley with R.H. Donnelley becoming a wholly owned subsidiary.
