You might possibly get some pointers from national bodies like the UK's
British Printing Industries Federation (britishprint.com)

The one place who would have known would have been PIRA, the Printing 
Industries Research Association in the UK, but they were wound up some 
years ago.

Other countries have similar institutions. In the USA it used to be the 
GCA, but I have no idea if they have maintained their archives since 
they became IdeAlliance.

As the 1960s slowly becomes ancient history, it's possible that someone 
at the Printing Historical Society 
(http://printinghistoricalsociety.org.uk/) might have information, or 
the St Bride Foundation Library (https://www.sbf.org.uk/).
