'This book is an historical record of some of the activities of a continually changing group of employers representing the trade of printing and industries allied to printing in South Australia.  It is a story of people, most of whose names do not appear in this publication; It is a story of people dedicated to a philosophy that it is fair and reasonable to make some repayment in personal effort to an industry through which they gained a livelihood.  The proof of their combined efforts is evidenced by the general unity of purpose which prevails in the organisation still; the ability of its members to proudly recognize that unity and to support it financially and socially.' - W. Max Scrymgour, President South Australian Region
