NICHOLAS DORAZIO - Widely known throughout The Bronx, New York City, and an even larger area because of the
excellence of the organization he heads, The Bronx Standard Press, at Nos. 2714-18 Third Avenue, Nicholas Dorazio,
with his partner, John Dorazio, has built up a complete and admirable printing service. Ambitious and able, thoroughly
trained in the printing trade, Nicholas Dorazio deserves the success he has won. He was born in Rome, Italy, April
24, 1899, son of Vincent and Theresa Dorazio, and was brought to this country at the age of five. Both parents
are living, and his father, who served for three years in the Italian Army, has retired from active business. The
son attended the public schools in Quincy, Massachusetts, and Public School No. 1, The Bronx, New York City, which
he finished in 1913. He then entered upon his career as a printer, to which he has adhered ever since. His first
occupation was with "Collier's Weekly," but in 1921 he established his present business. The well equipped
plant of The Bronx Standard Press, prints calendars, office forms, souvenir journals, and wedding announcements.
Attractiveness of appearance and excellence of workmanship characterize the output. The company has a large group
of permanent clients and serves an increasing clientele. Mr. Dorazio is a member of The Bronx Board of Trade and
of the Knights of Columbus. He is a communicant of the Roman Catholic Church, Our Lady of Pity. Ambitious and intelligent,
with the capacity for making friends easily and for inspiring confidence, interested in a wide variety of affairs,
Nicholas Dorazio bids fair to become a leading citizen of The Bronx as it grows in importance.
