Born: Sept. 1932. First class in printing at Roosevelt Jr. High, Compton, CA, 1946. Took vocational printing at Compton Hi, Compton, CA. Interest in typography began, seriously, at Los Angeles State College, in 1961. Have a degree in Printing Management, Bachelor of Science, 1964. Started a phototype set business in 1966 with a NuArc camera, and a PhotoTypositor and 100 film fonts. Moved to Santa Ana, CA in 1970. Did headline typesetting work for Disneyland, Road & Track Magazine, Hunt-Wesson Foods, and most of the graphic designers in the Orange County, CA area from 1966 to 1992.  Even-though the business ceased in 1993, I continue to be interested in typography.
I have accumulated a modest collection of type books and type specimens.
Presently, I am seeking information regarding type styles and their designers.
Would appreciate any information you or your readers have regarding the designers of such styles as: Cincinnati Initials, page 793, 1923 ATF Catalog.
Thank you for your interest.  Gary Barsch.
