Biographical Note

Hal W. Trovillion was a publisher who operated local newspapers and a private press known as Trovillion Private Press in Herrin, Illinois. In 1904, after Hal left Indiana University, he moved to Herrin and took over two local newspapers, The Herrin Daily Journal and the Egyptian Republican. In 1908 he started a private press publication. Works were typically published in editions of a few hundred copies, on fine hand made European papers, with titles printed in gilt or on paper title cards. Usually every copy was numbered, and hand signed by both of the Trovillions. The books were almost all short, under 100 pages and often under 50 pages. Trovillion died in 1967.
