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 eagle 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 eagle 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 which was in the middle of the Little Wild Cat Creek that went through our farm near the town of Edna Mills. Many times the town of Edna Mills was flooded by this creek. Still it was a beautiful little town. The sign (Blackhawk Island) on the island is no longer there today because of these floods. The small newspaper was distributed throughout Edna Mills and around the neighborhood. Many people would subscrible to the newspaper, but most of the time I would sell them for ten cents each. I lived on this small farm outside of Edna Mills and went to school on the school bus to Rossville High School in Rossville about four miles away. I left Indiana and joined the United States Army. Later I got my high school diploma from Rossville High through the Army GED program. After the army I went to collage. I now live in Denver, Colorado.
