Caslon ("temporary revival")
This specimen doesn't say, explicitly, that it is a revival by ATF. Since all of the other specimens are, however, I am presuming that it is. But it could be a revival by Perfection Type (which was a foundry capable of casting its own type).
A single page specimen (the back of this specimen, not shown, is blank save for a rubber stamp of the address of Perfection Type, Inc.) The specimen does not say "ATF," but the Series number (714) is ATF Craw Modern. McGrew dates its introduction to 1958.
News Gothic BoldMcGrew dates its introduction to 1958.
The showing above contains an interesting table of ATF gothic faces which assembles various faces (in various weights and expansions) as if they constituted a single family. Here's a version of it directly:
Univers Nos. 75 & 76
Two one-page specimens.
The ATF catalog from which fragments are reproduced here would either have been published in the US without copyright notice when such notice was required to secure copyright (the more likely case) or not have had its copyright renewed as would then have been required (no ATF catalog copyrights were renewed). It is therefore in the public domain. The digitizations of these fragments here remain in the public domain.
