William Bullock
 
AT A GLANCE:
William Bullock's invention, in 1863, represents the beginning of the modern, web-fed newspaper press, which works from curved, stereotype plates and prints on both sides of the paper in one pass through the machine. It achieved the speed of rotary printing, and by feeding from a continuous roll of paper. Bullock's press was capable of delivering about 10,000 flat sheets printed on both sides, per hour.
