Alexander S. Lawson taught typography at Rochester Institute of Technology from 1947 to 1977. His most well-known work is Anatomy of a Typeface (David R. Godine, 1990), still a much recommended book among type aficionados.
In late 2009 a blog archive was developed to honor & document his life's work.
