An obituary in the April 19 editions of The Sun mischaracterized Staley McBrayer as the developer of the newspaper offset press. McBrayer conceived of the idea, but it was an engineer, J. Grant Ghormley Jr., and a draftsman, Clyde T. "Jack" Kitchens, who were responsible for designing and building a workable version. Ghormley and Kitchens were awarded the patents on the design.

An article in yesterday's editions misspelled the last name of Sister John Francis Schilling, principal of St. Frances Academy.

The Sun regrets the errors.
