Roll Call was founded in 1955 by Sid Yudain, who was working as a press secretary to Congressman Al Morano (R-Conn.) at the time.  Yudain published the inaugural issue on June 16, 1955, with an initial printing of 10,000 copies.  In 1986, Yudain sold  Roll Call to Arthur Levitt, who was serving as the chairman of the American Stock Exchange at the time of the sale. Yudain continued to work as a  columnist at Roll Call after the sale.  The Economist Group acquired Roll Call in 1993.
