In September 1952, P. F. Collier and Son Corporation hired Couch as Editor-in –Chief of its 20-volume Collier's Encyclopedia, and of Collier’s annual Year Book. Couch assumed his new job at a time of unprecedented consumer demand for encyclopedias. Under P.F. Collier President John G. Ryan, Collier’s sales rose from $9 million in 1953 to $23 million in 1956 and over $25 million in 1957. As Editor-in-Chief, Couch sought to present multiple and varying perspectives on controversial issues addressed in the encyclopedia and in the annual Year Book. He quickly came under criticism from left-wing academics and librarians for soliciting article contributions from conservative and anti-communist writers. In Collier’s widely acclaimed Year Book for 1957, covering the dramatic events of 1956, Couch edited articles from three hundred contributors, while addressing explosive topics, such as the Suez Crisis, and the anti-Communist Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Ryan generally supported Couch’s editorial policies and directed him to compile an expanded revision of Collier’s Encyclopedia by 1962. However, in 1957, outside investors seized full control of Crowell-Collier Publishing Company, P.F. Collier’s parent company, and storm clouds began to gather for Couch. Already under a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigation for an unregistered bond sale, Crowell Collier’s new management also held insider stock options and would profit personally from manipulating an increase in Crowell Collier’s stock price. Crowell Collier’s new directors, paper bag company executives with no publishing experience, pressured Ryan to loosen encyclopedia sales practices, lower customer credit standards, and cut Couch’s editorial budget. Ryan resisted, and despite generating record profits, was fired in April 1959. With his friend and ally gone, Couch’s days at P.F. Collier were numbered. Couch rebuffed a proposal by Crowell Collier’s chairman that the expanded revision of Collier’s Encyclopedia include one volume of equal page length for each letter of the alphabet. Unwilling to compromise his editorial standards, Couch was fired, following Ryan out the door in July 1959.
