D.B. Updike on the aims of the Society of Printers

Boston designer D.B. Updike was president of Boston’s Society of Printers, and in his report of the 1912–1913 season, he outlined aims for the Society eight years after he cofounded it. Seventy years later (so, 1983), President Duncan Todd printed these aims anew as a thank-you to the membership. Now, what are these aims? You should read these two pages to find out on your own, but it was essentially Slow down and do good work. So, as David Byrne would say, Same as it ever was. An essential piece of Boston design history.
