Biographical or historical data
Abraham Bernard "A.B." Hirschfeld moved with his family to Denver, Colo. in 1903 from Cincinnati, Ohio. From an early age he wanted to be a printer and at 15, he began working as a printer's "devil" or apprentice. In 1907, he bought a small hand press for $39 and opened his first business in the basement of a fruit stand at 17th and Larimer Streets, Denver. His printing business increased and the company moved many times into ever larger quarters, finally moving into the 50,000 square foot A.B. Hirschfeld Press building located at Speer Boulevard and Broadway. Hirschfeld was active in numerous civic and social organizations and was a Colorado State Senator (1935-1941). He died in 1957. The company was also run by his son, Edward Hirschfeld and grandson, A. Barry Hirschfeld. In 2005, the A.B. Hirschfeld Press merged with National Printing and Packaging Co. and C&M Press to become National Hirschfeld. After 102 years, the company ceased operations in 2009.
