Palmer, head of the Institute for Research into English Teaching in Tokyo at that time. The dictionary then reached Humphrey S. Milford, the then publisher of University of Oxford and later, the managing director of Oxford University Press, who helped the book rise to the worldwide success that provided as the base for its present dominant position in the field of dictionaries.
