Frank Hinman Pierpont. As a patent clerk in Hartford, CT, he was a witness signatory to the patent for the Paige Typesetter. He later went to Germany to help promote the Rogers Typograph composing linecaster. He then became the works manager for the Monotype firm in England, and was without question the most influential person in its history.
A portrait of Pierpont was reprinted in 1924 in Bullen, Henry Lewis. "The Typograph and the Monoline Machines." The Inland Printer. Vol. 73, No. 1 (April, 1924): 65-67 .
The copyright on the 1924 volume of The Inland Printer was not renewed, as was then required. It therefore entered the public domain upon the expiration of its initial copyright. The extracts from it reprinted here remain in the public domain.
