In 1923 and 1924, Alton Knowles was a senior at Hartville High School and editor for the school newspaper. It was part of his job to take the paper to North Canton to be printed at The North Canton Sun. From observing the mechanics of the trade, he developed an interest in printing. Mr. Sell, owner of The Sun, gave Alton a catalog and in the spring of 1924 he sent away for a small hand operated Kelsey press and book of printing instructions. After graduating from high school, he took a full-time job at The Monarch Rubber Company but began to handset forms and print them as a hobby in his parents’ basement at 306 East Maple St. He printed business cards, letterheads, envelopes, and invoices.
