Type collector. Pumphandle Press.

Provided many of the 19th century types for which matrices were electroformed by Andrew Dunker, and thus contributed significantly to the metal type aspect of the 20th century revival of "antique" (19th century ornamental) types.

Saxe {APHA 71 (1986)} lists him with ca. 400 fonts of metal and 100 fonts of wood type.

Collection to David W. Peat
