Ben Franklin Honor Society Book of Wisdom: A Collection of Essays from Leaders of Graphic Communication
Harvey R. Levenson, Ph. D., Editor, Professor Emeritus, Cal Poly

Former President Teddy Roosevelt once said, “I believe that the more you know about the past, the better you are prepared for the future.” That same sense of navigating the future by reflecting on the past forms the backdrop for this special BFHS Book of Wisdom. It comprises and preserves collective wisdom gleaned from 47 Ben Franklin Honor Society (BFHS) members who share personal life experiences and anecdotes about achieving successful careers within the printing industry.

Their life lessons about endurance, perseverance, and problem solving combine to provide similar success roadmaps for young, upwardly mobile and established graphic arts professionals — as well as a mentorship for those students aspiring to some day follow in their footsteps. Their stories have never been told before this book’s ambitious endeavor, but have remained in the archives of their minds as personal memories and learned life lessons that can provide unique, actionable insight for present and emerging printing industry leaders.

The body of knowledge contributed by these prominent BFHS members — a diverse group of men and women whose careers spanned a glorious period when the printing industry dominated the communication landscape — also provides much needed sustenance and practical, visionary insight about overcoming contemporary challenges the graphic communication industry now faces.

The contributions of these BFHS member authors — and those of the more than 280 fellow BFHS members—should be saluted. After all, unlocking the door to our industry’s future resides with those who possess the key to our industry’s past.
