The two print shops at Benson werethe Graphic Arts
department and the Graphic Communications major.
The Graphic Arts shop run by Mr. David Hewitt
taught sophomores how to read and assemble basic
styles of type, how to make memorandum pads, how to
silkscreen and duplicate. The duplication process
involved mimeographing and spirit duplication.
The advanced two-year, four period printing major
was instructed by Mr. John Conway. As juniors, the
students learned how to print with the Harris, Multilith,
Chief presses and the newly acquired A. B. Dick press.
They learned how to compose type on the lntertype,
the Justowriter and the typesetting computer. The
juniors also learned how to make line negatives,
positives and halftones in the darkroom department.
As seniors, the students increased their skills and
prepared themselves for the printing trade.
"Printing was harder than I thought it would be, but
then it was extraordinarily easy after I mastered the art
of troubleshooting !" revealed Steve Granquist t12j.
The new machines added to the print shop were the
A. B. Dick 11 x 17 duplicator and an additional work
station for the typesetting computer.
"We hope to purchase a large press called a Solna
sometime next year," boasted Mr. Conway.
ln addition to the printing departments, there was an
Advanced Photography class instructed by Mr. David
Small. It was open to all advanced photography
students and they learned more detailed photo
techniques such as solarization, production photos,
commercial photography, posterization and color
