Hunt's Centennial Historical Tour (DVRBA) was a booklet describing the C.H.Hunt Pen Co's history, including a section on their Speedball-branded Linoleum Block Printing products: "In 1936, Hunt became America's first large manufacturer of inexpensive accessories for linoleum block printing, a popular school craft. Henry Frankenfield, printmaker and art educator, developed this line. In 1937, Hunt began to sponsor the National Scholarship Award, for categories such as linoleum block prints, lettering and pen and ink drawings, and still sponsors talented young artists."
