Notes: ""That press will drive both of you to your doom," Drs. H.L. Smith and James Eckman were warned when they established their press in 1939. And so they had a name for it. Altho especially appropriate, its insigne was not designed expressly for the press. Rather, it is a Carl S. Junge creation for Barnhart Brothers and Spindler sometime before 1925." © James Lamar Weygand
