THE KING LIBRARY PRESS
  . . `1
Two distinguished speakers will mark the 25th Anniversary of _
the King Library Press on April 2 at 7:30 PM. in the Gallery. é
John S. Mayfield, of Washington, D.C., will deliver a talk E
entitled "My Friend, Algernon Charles SwinburneJ" A celebrated {
collector, Mayfield owns portions of Swinbure's original manuscript {
for "On the Cliffs," a work recently published by the Press. He is §
also one of the·founders of The Manuscript Society and the American »
Committee of the International Byron Society. . }
James Mosley, of London, will speak on "Eric Gill as Typographer.“ ?
Mosley studied with Philip Gaskell at Cambridge and was associated · {
with Water Lane Press there. Later he worked with the Stevens,
Shanks type foundry. He is Librarian of the St. Bride Institute, a i
research collection built on the library of printing historian T
William Blades. He is also editor of the Journal of the Printing - y
Historical Society. 4 _ i - Q
. The King Library Press's first book, The Marriage of Cock Robin
and Jenny Wrenn, appeared as the work of the High Noon Press in l956.
It was printed by Carolyn Hammer, Nancy Lair and Mary Voorhees. The *
Press's current name first appeared on Thomas Merton's Prometheus: E
A Meditation in 1958. From these beginnings, The King Library Press y
- has become an internationally—known program based in the Department 3
of Special Collections. It has received special impetus from the  
presence in Lexington of the late artist, printer and type designer
` Victor Hammer and from the Gravesend Press of the late Joseph C. I
Graves, Sr. Two of Hammer's presses are presently in Special I I
Collections, and the Gravesend Press's equipment as well as the
Joseph C. Graves, Sr., typographical library were presented to the l
University of Kentucky by Mrs. Graves in 1965.
The Press has produced a total of 2l books, including choice K
original texts and important reprints. These are widely collected and
have earned significant critical recognition. In addition to its
publishing program the Press's Graphic Design Seminars have brought
outstanding figures from around the world to Lexington to meet with
U.K. students and other interested persons from throughout the region.
The Anniversary program is free, and all are invited to attend.
For further information call Gay Reading (258-86ll) or Jim Birchfield
(258-2651).

 LN IVERS ITY . ANNUAL
V OF REPORT
(_ (KENTUCKY ` FOR
LIBRARIES l980
_ STAFF t - 1 - "
ORGANIZATION » _ M I » ‘
It was a banner year for the LSO. After several years of dormancy it
sprang to life again in its 25th year and once again became a viable
» organization. _The year began with the election of officers for 1980. Toni -
Powell (Agriculture) was elected President, Andrea Bryant .(Business and -
I Economics) was Vice President, Betsy Peters (Acquisitions) was Secretary, and
I Sandra Muenks (Cataloging) was elected Treasurer. Other staff members were
soon involved with the organization of the LSD departmental representatives
(list attached). We also began a publication for the staff and about the
staff called the WAX BEAN. This proved very successful and may be continued
next year (If the printing machine holds out). · _
1980 was a very active year for LSO. We began the year with a Newcomers' y
~ Reception in an effort to introduce new staff and reacquaint old staff with
their colleagues, sponsored an LS0 tasting party (to feature the cookbook),
the annual picnic, LS0 Walking Tour of Historic Lexington, the Silver Jubilee `
(combined with a newcomers' reception), and the annual Christmas Party. We
had 6 lunch hour programs (iisted at the end) and served coffee and donuts for
both ACTS and faculty meetings. Our moneymaking ventures included the sale of
paperback books, the cookbook, and of course the membership dues. We were
also very generous during 1980. At Thanksgiving we gave 3 food baskets and at
1 Christmas we gave $16h.05 to the Medical Center for gifts for indigent V
patients, collected toys for the needy children of Lexington, and treated Paul
Willis, our Director of Libraries to dinner at Holly Hill Inn as his Christmas
gift. I .
LS0 was not withoutl its ups and downs (fortunately more ups). In
September we lost our Secretary, Betsy Peters, and this left -a void in the
organization. Betsy was a very enthusiastic member of the organization and
very innovative in her approach to our activities. We were sorry Betsy left
~ before the Silver Jubilee (a party she really looked forward to.) At the end
of the year the bank begann bouncing our checks and it seems that they
deposited our hard earned money into someone elseis account. Sandra missed
· the Christmas luncheon trying to straighten that out. .
The LS0 could not have survived without the support of the staff. The
officers thank Jean Robinson for_organizing the lunch hour programs and the
food baskets, Jim Shaeffer for his design of our logo, David Farrell and the
members of the Social Committee for the fine programs, the staff lounge
committee for keeping the staff lounge so clean and pleasant, Paul Willis for .
his continuing support in the organization, and of course all of you 106
members who worked hard and enthusiastically to bring LS0 back to life.
