I started at the Shamokin News-Dispatch in 1964, when I was twenty-years-old, and progressed up to a linotype operator. I'm now sixty-nine-years old, and I progressed to a book publishing plant in Bloomsburg, PA. which is still in existence, but now is photocomp. I operated a linotype there for a few years, I did lots of work in caps and small caps on the machine. I also set a book in German while there. My father was also a linotype machine operator, and I couldn't shine his shoes as an operator, although I was very accurate typing. Thank you for the opportunity to tell my story. I operated a number 8 Linotype.
