Biographical NoteReturn to Top
Roy Trewin Porte was born in Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada, on 8 May 1876. His love of press work came to him as a child when he prepared small printing jobs on a hand press in his mother's home. He moved to North Dakota and became a printer and editor of various papers. In 1916, he moved his family to Salt Lake City, Utah, to assume the position of secretary of the Ben Franklin Club. He published the first edition of the Price List which became well-known as The Franklin Printing Catalog. In 1924, Porte established the Porte Publishing Company to continue publishing the catalog. Porte traveled widely speaking before printing organizations and aiding in humanitarian efforts. Roy Porte died 21 July 1936.
