Stark S. Dillard became president of the Association in 1931 and “added to the printing industry of the Carolinas,” according to the 1967-68 PICA Annual Report. In 1938, WB Hall was president of the North Carolina Master Printers Association. President is synonymous with the Chairman of the Board today.

During World War II, Norman Foust served a two-year term, acting as a liaison between the printing industry and serving on the War Production Board. A keynote of his term as president was the formation of the Carolinas Master Printers Association.

“Meetings throughout the Carolinas were held to aid management in doing a better job,” according to the Annual Report. Paul Robinson was president in 1944.[/dropshadowbox]
