Notes: "Because he likes sumac, and because there has been a clump of that plant at every location of his press (in Minneapolis, Christmas Lake and La Crosse) Emerson G. Wulling, in 1945, assumed the Sumac Press imprint. Its device was made by a fellow Ampersander, Frank Kofron." © James Lamar Weygand
