Designed by Gustave F. Schroeder at Central. [Loy] First shown (as Cushing Old Style) as early as 1889. Named after prominent printer J.S. Cushing who suggested the design. [American Bookmaker, 1889/1890]
Copied by Monotype in 1901. Keystone’s Richelieu [by Gustave F. Schroeder who once worked at Central] also appears to be a copy. Linotype had it as Title No. 1, and BB&S had a very similar face Custer Bold which in 1925 was renamed Bookman Bold. [McGrew 1993]
