Editorial Minutes, January 1974

From the Archives

“As one who has been around FSG for a very long time, I often find treasures of our past. Among the memorabilia are brass stamping dies which I use as paperweights and an old loose leaf notebook marked ‘office memos’ covering about 10 years from the mid ’50s through the mid ’60s. I hadn’t gone to that notebook in quite some time but had occasion to recently. As I was leafing through — noting the memo that granted staffers 1/2 day for Christmas shopping — a crumpled set of papers fell out from between some pages. I flattened this now-accordion-shaped document to find these editorial meeting notes from 1974. Reading them, I was reminded of that time long before email and technology when there was typing, copying, and interoffice mail delivery bringing the house’s news to the staff.”
