Subsidiary of Taylor Technical Communications
During a school English Competition event where I attended Rossville High School in Rossville, Indiana a few years ago. We as students were told to come up with a logotype using three initials from our name and give our logoytpe a name. My name is Kenneth Ray Taylor, so my initials would be KRT. I came up up with the logotype you see on the right, the engle was added later, using Kenneth as the K turned sideway, Ray as the R in the middle, and Taylor as the T on the bottom. I called my logotype Bar Arrow Ranch. With the T and part of the K you should be able to see a Arrow pointing up to a Bar and the R in the middle stood for Ranch. This logotype brand would be used on a ranch and would be put on cattle if I was the owner of that Bar Arrow Ranch, maybe in Montana or Colorado somewhere. It was only a dream. Since I really didn't have a real ranch, this logotype without the engle was first used by me when I established a small printing company with a hand press called Taylor Printing Company in Edna Mills, Indiana when I was only fourteen years old. I printed a small local weekly newsaper about two pages long called The Edna Mills News, later it became The Blackhawk Tribune. I named this newspaper after the name of a small island called Blackhawk Island in the middle of the Little Wild Cat Creek near where it went through the town of Edna Mills. Many times the town of Edna Mills was flooded by the creek. Still it was a beautiful little town. The sign (Blackhawk Island) on the island is no longer there today because of these floods. I and my best friend Jerry Wise, who was my Reporter, distributed the newspapers throughout that small town and around the neighborhood. Many people would subscrible to the newspaper, but most of the time we would sell them for ten cents each. Jerry Wise and I both lived on small farms next to each other outside of Edna Mills and went to school together on the school bus to Rossville High School in Rossville, Indiana about four miles away. I never seen my friend Jerry Wise again after I left Indiana and joined the United States Army. It wasn't untill this year 2015 that I was able to find my best friend Jerry Wise again. I talked to him on the telephone and he remembered all those old times we spent together. We plan to get together again soon after all these years. He now lives in Colfax, Indiana, just south of Lafayette, Indiana and has retired. I am really looking forward in seeing him again.
