Found in the Archives

I recently found this brochure in the archives  entitled “Regulations Governing Visitors Touring Kingsport Press, Inc.”

The regulations were pretty firm on not speaking to employees nor distracting them in any way. One reason for this was avoid injury. According to the brochure, “We feel positive that no visitor wishes to carry forever on his conscience the realization that he was responsible for maiming an employee of any manufacturing establishment.”

As Kingsport Press was one of the largest  book manufacturers in the nation, there was a lot of interest from all over the country in visiting the plant.The archives has a guest register from the Kingsport Press that ranges from  1924 to 1940.

The archives has a guest register from the Kingsport Press that ranges from  1924 to 1940.  It would be interesting to see if there are any notable names in it.
