Hirschfeld Family Papers
A. B. (Abraham Bernard) Hirschfeld was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1888. In 1904 he moved to Denver, Colorado, and in 1907 he started A. B. Hirschfeld Press. A. B. Hirschfeld's son Edward Hirschfeld (1907-1984) worked alongside his father and held leadership positions in the family business after his father's death in 1957. Edward's son A. Barry Hirschfeld served as president of the family printing business, which is now called National Hirschfeld. In 2005, Hirschfeld Press merged with National Printing and Packaging and C and M Press.
The Hirschfeld Family Papers are primarily focused on A. B. Hirschfeld Press and the roles that A. B., Edward, and A. Barry Hirschfeld played in founding and leading the company. Materials consist of three books; a videocassette; a CD; documents and newspaper clippings about A. B., Edward, and Barry Hirschfeld; and an invitation for the National Hirschfeld 100th anniversary celebration. Some materials in the collection were printed by A. B. Hirschfeld Press.
