I suspect that was unusual in U.S. schools so recently. But it was taught in big-city (well, NYC) trade schools as late as the 1960s.

Not to the standard professed in the Old Skool Printing video. That looked lovely.

I have a small Kelsey platen press in the basement, along with paraphernalia, including fonts. Have not even looked at it for probably 25 years, though.
