At various times the National Amateur Press Association has had
unusual stimulus, sometimes bringing it out of an almost fatal
doldrums. In 1882 an article in a very popular youth magazine,
St. Nicholas, had such an effect, spreading the gospel to a
national audience. In 1930, Edwin Hadley Smith and Vincent B.
Haggerty engineered a boy printer recruitment program with
cooperation from the Kelsey Press Company of Meriden, Conn. In
1966 a good article on hobby printing in Popular Science magazine
produced vital printing members. Kelsey Press Company again
cooperated in 1969 to bring in another large group of printers.
