The Origin and History of the New York Employing Printers' Association: The Evolution of a Trade Association

By Charlotte E. Morgan | Go to book overview

PREFACE

SEVERAL years ago, the writer, in making a report to a Seminar under Professor Henry Rogers Seager of Columbia University, became interested in the history of employing printers as typical employers. Much has been written on the problems of labor and the development of the unions, but little or nothing of the problems of the employers and their attempts to solve them. The printers proved a particularly happy choice, for among them have been many writers who expressed themselves freely on trade and economic conditions. As a group they tended to print all their records. Most important, they were among the very first to organize. Moreover, much material is available, thanks to the historic vision of the late George Bruce, Theodore L. DeVinne, and the present Librarian of the Typographical Library and Museum of the American Type Foundry, Mr. Henry L. Bullen.

The writer takes this opportunity to express her debt of gratitude to the many members of the Employing Printers' Association who have given freely of their time in supplying her with the unwritten history of the earlier organizations. Particularly does she wish to express her thanks to Professor Henry R. Seager, to Mr. Henry L. Bullen, to Mr. Franklin Heath, to Mr. Charles Francis, and to Mr. F. A. Silcox for their helpful suggestions and kindly advice, without which, indeed, she could not have completed this study.
