Administrative History: A proclamation from the Office of the Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky proclaimed September 20, 1992 "American Printing House for the Blind Day in Louisville." The proclamation was presented as part of a lintel dedication ceremony held that day on the company's front lawn, where the original lintel that had once supported the 1883 entrance to the company's building was installed. The restored lintel had been removed from the APH building when an addition was made in 1955. The lintel dedication was held in memory of Bruce Dehaven Miller, a Louisville engineer and inventor, whose family made possible the restoration and preservation of the lintel.
