Year You Started with Letterpress
1974
How You Got Involved In Letterpress Printing

Keen interest from editing high school and university publications morphed into a career in PR and marketing. Bought 1st press, a C&P 8 x 12 for a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Presses & Equipment

The aforementioned C&P work horse, a couple of for-show Kelseys, a not-fully-assembled schneidewend Reliance iron hand press and a Hoe "Miles Nervine" proof press . lots of type -- but seldom just the right one for the job at hand.

Education & Training

Nothing formal in printing. OJT as editor, planner and purchaser of printing. Initial press time as a hanger on in the neophitic stages of the UnIversity of Alabama book arts program. Trial, error and punishment.

Work History

USAF base info officer, corporate PR /AD director, industry trade association executive, independent PR/marketing counselor.

Other Interests & Hobbies

Managing and enjoying a country place. Hunting. History. Travel. Civic work. Water color painting, Lino cuts and wood engraving. Children and 12 grandchildren.
