Truman N. Burrill
During the American Civil War, Burrill formed and headed an infantry company in 1862. He was discharged from the Union Army in 1863 because of a physical disability. In 1864, he returned to the Army with the rank of Captain and served as a commissary on the staffs of several commanding officers.
Burrill joined the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in 1880 as a storekeeper. He later became the clerk in charge of proposals and supplies. With the sudden death of O. H. Irish in 1883, Burrill was appointed Chief of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. He held this office until 1885.
