The Z. Smith Reynolds Library is the recipient of a complete print shop. The equipment came from a Winston-Salem citizen, Carl Hein, who spent his entire life in printing and packaging, retiring eleven years ago as the president of R.J. Reynolds Packaging.
As a teenager growing up in the Pittsburgh area in the 1950s, Hein ran his own printing company as he attended Carnegie Mellon University. The printing equipment has been in his family for 60 years, moved numerous times by Carl and his wife, Mimi, and has been well loved and cared for.
