October 12, 1832, 24 journeymen printers from town of York met at the York Hotel. These men probably represented most of the printers in York at that time. Toronto Commercial Directory for 1836–37 lists a total of 24 men attached to the trade. Toronto Typographical Society was reorganized on Feb. 9, 1844. Original president, Daniel Bancroft, became president again in 1844. A number of familiar names from the old association are recorded as members of the new; these include Bancroft, R. W. Clindinning, Samuel J. Jones, and James Lumsden. The nucleus of the reorganized body was drawn from the old membership, and the constitution of the Toronto Typographical Society of 1844 was essentially the same. Printed: Thompson & Co.
