ABOUT







Indestructible Type Co

Small typefounder located at 491-493 Carroll Avenue in Chicago, active in the late 19th century. The Inland Printer of 1895 writes: In the column of business notices last month a description was given of a new type metal. A company to manufacture the new material has now been formed, and a license of incorporation secured. The title of the new concern is the Indestructible Type Company; capital, $100,000. The officers are: President, George N. Hall, president Citizens Bank of South Haven, Michigan; vice-president and general manager, John West; secretary, Charles W. Clingman, of Chicago; treasurer, H. B. Thomson, of Chicago. That same issue of The Inland Printer shows some border types and an upright calligraphic script called Indestructible Script.

Lenny Knox reports that he only found the Indestructible Type Company in the 1895 and 1896 issues of the Chicago City Directory search for 1894-1897, and thus suspects that the company seems to have existed for only two years or less.
