Gustav F. Schroeder info?

ChuckGroth's picture

Hello!
I'm trying to find out some information about the type designer Gustav F. Schroeder. All I am able to stir up so far is very cursory.
I figured if anyone could help me, it would be the great minds at Typophile.
Can anyone here point me in a good direction to find useful information about Schroeder?

Thanks in advance!

-Chuck

There seems to be enough basic info (such as where he was living at some key points in time) to be able to use some of the available genealogy sources, including newspaper searches for related articles. Probably not much in Mill Valley, but as you know, there are/were quite a few papers in Saint Louis. There are also immigration records, naturalization data, census records, military records, and lots more. It depends on what kind of information you're looking for. - Herb

If you search for a type designer always look at first at the Klingspor Museum. Hans Reichardt has made a pdf from most of them. See the link.

On the last page of the pdf also some references are listed you can probably find at a library like Columbia.
