From the Contact form:
I’m trying to get a sense of the tasks that went into proofreading the text of a small-town newspaper in the U.S. in the 1940s. I don’t know how common it was for linotype machines to be used by such papers at that point, and if so how proofing worked. Or if some earlier technology would more likely have been used, what that would have been and how proofreading would have worked.
Thank your for any ideas or guidance you can provide. —Bert Brandenburg
