Brown Printing Founder Wayne ‘Bumps’ Brown Dies
When Wayne “Bumps” Brown came back to Waseca (MN) from World War II, he wanted to do just one thing: start a company. With single-minded determination, abiding optimism and a gift for sales, he quickly grew Brown Printing into one of the largest printing businesses in the nation.
Brown died Monday at his home in Indian Wells, Calif. He was 88.
Bumps, in partnership with his dad and two brothers, started Brown Printing in 1949 as the printing department of the Waseca Journal and Herald.
Today, it is the largest employer in Waseca and the fourth-largest web offset printer in the country.
