Norman T. A. Munder

Baltimore-based printer.

Although type Munder Venezian (originally Laclede Oldstyle) was (re)named after Munder, I do not believe that Munder himself was responsible for any letterform design.

In Production Manager (1937)

Production Manager. Vol. 3, No. 12, Whole No. 36 (August, 1937). This issue of this magazine was dedicated to Munder and contains two articles: Robert L. Leslie's "Norman T. A. Munder: A Brief Sketch of the Career of a Famous Baltimore Printer" and Frederic W. Goudy's "Recollections of N.T.A.M."

The icon here links to a PDF of the entire issue, as scanned by Google from the University of Michigan copy. They mistakenly list its date as 1915; this is probably a good thing, because even though it is in the public domain had they realized it was 1937 they probably wouldn't have released it.

Its frontispiece is a portrait of Munder (reproduced on its own below); it also contains smaller portraits of Bradley, Thomas M. Cleland, Frederic Goudy, and Bruce Rogers. It contains a portrait identified as William Aspinwell Bradley, but I believe that this is in fact a portrait of Will H. Bradley (q.v. for a discussion of this).
