From Ken Blair...

To the family of Henry: I worked with Henry at the Allen Press for around 35 or more years. He was a hard worker and always had a pleasant greeting and was a very friendly person. I think Henry purchased letter press printing equipment and handset type from Allen Press as they converted to offset printing and printed letterheads and envelopes from his home. At Allen Press he kept track of truckloads of paper and was responsible for seeing that all the paper was available and delivered to each press as needed. Henry was a “Key Person” at Allen Press. I am sorry for your loss of him.
