The National Typographical Union had been founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1852 to represent printers in fourteen United States cities.  The union held its 1863 annual meeting in Cleveland, Ohio. The gathering elected Eugene Valette of Philadelphia as its president, chose Eugene B. George of Chicago as chair of its executive committee for the coming year, and determined Louisville, Kentucky as its meeting place next year.  (By John Osborne)
