Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Texas wasn't the only area where such advancements in technology were taking place. Charles Claybaugh of Brigham City, then a director and later president of National Editorial Association (now NNA), was hearing more and more about the concept as he travelled about the nation. In 1961 he accompanied a group which toured the Pacific Northwest to see offset in actual use. One display was at the Hillsboro (Oregon) Argus, where a Thatcher press, developed in that area, was running at 22,000 per hour. It impressed the Utahn and he frequently cited it as he subsequently argued that offset was the method of the future. Another impressive stop, he told fellow publishers, was in Oregon City, where a Goss Suburban was in use. Whether it was McBrayer, reports of those who visited other newspapers or material they were reading that provided the clinching argument, web offset interest swiftly increased in Utah. The first to turn theory into fact in the Beehive state was the Tooele Transcript, which produced its July 27, 1962 issue on a Goss Suburban. The paper published by Alex Dunn had elected to set its "cold typography" on the Intertype Foto-setter, developed a decade earlier but principally used by commercial printers. The only other Fotosetter in Utah, in fact, was at Twin Typographers, the composition plant owned by brothers Harold and Howard Gerber in Salt Lake City. They'd placed it in operation in October, 1953. The Tooele Bulletin followed its twin-weekly "sister" four days later. The state's next paper to "go offset" was the American Fork Citizen on June 6, 1963. Owner E. Russell Innes was a partner in News Publishing Center, which had a Vanguard V-15 in its Salt Lake City plant, where the American Fork paper was produced, followed a few days later by another Innes publication, the Lehi Free Press. On July 15, 1963, Claybaugh, who was also a partner in News Publishing Center, unveiled the initial offset version of his Box Elder News. It, too, was printed on the Vanguard press.
