N. T. Gray, Proprietor: 302 North Main Street.

When it was first established, in 1855, this house was known as Edwards' Directory Office. Edwards was succeeded about the year 1868 by Capt. L. H. Aldrich, who conducted the place as a directory and general printing office. The Christian Publishing Co. followed Aldrich's management, and Dowling & Gray were the successors to that concern. This was in 1875. Six months later Mr. N, T. Gray acquired sole possession, and except for a short period, when Mr. H. C. Spring — now of the Spring Printing Co. — was with him, has con- ducted its affairs alone.

Mr. Gray was, prior to his venture here, one of the proprietors of the Mobile Tribune. A native of Oswego, New York, he commenced at the printing trade when but twelve years old. His experience and training, therefore, amply qualify him for the management of an extensive printing house. Nine magnificent presses are running in this establishment, and all the latest mechanical accessories are added so soon as they appear. The annual business transactions with the city and surrounding country, principally with the South and South- west, are fully $100,000. The specialties of this house are blank books and catalogues, as well as printing in all its branches. Six different catalogues are being now published by this house. This is a first-class house in every essential particular, and is one that performs its work thoroughly, satisfactorily and well.

• Occupation: THE PALLADIUM Wednesday, 10 Aug 1887, Oswego Town, Oswego, New York. Hot Springs, Ark. Daily News, “Mr. N. T. Gray, of St. Louis, Mo., who, with his wife, is visiting parents and relatives in this city and surrounding country informs us of a pleasant event which occurred at a gathering of relatives at the pleasant country home of his uncle, Mr. George Collins.

Among the number gathered around the table were seven whose united ages were 548 years. Theses were his uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Gray, each 85 years of age, Mr. and Mrs. John Parkinson, aged respectively 85 and 80 years, Mr. and Mrs. George Collins, 72 and 71, and Mrs. Hiram Lewis, 70. This was an enjoyable occasion, and will long be remembered by the young r ones present. It speaks volumes for the health and longevity of the inhabitants of Oswego. The above mentioned persons are among the earliest and most respected settlers of this part of New York State. Mr. Nathaniel T. Gray, is proprietor of the Riverside Printing house, of St. Louis, in which office Lee F. Spring, business manager of the News, learned the printing trade, with Mr. Gray, his uncle, as instructor.
