Mel began the Catalog of Homes in 1978 with equipment he purchased to publicize church youth activities. Beginning in Mel's garage with an IBM typewriter, process camera and table top press, he did it all in a small room. He now publishes 12 Catalogs of Homes and operates a state of the art printing business.
His daughter, Pam, has always been a part of the business from collating MLS sheets while in middle school to now being the Executive Director after graduating from Murray State University with a Business Degree. Her husband, John Wiggins, also a Murray State graduate, joined us in 1995 and now is in charge of the day-to-day operations as the Production Supervisor. Watch out, their two grandchildren, Hunter born March 1995, and Heath born in June 1997 are ready to take over the business.
