ABOUT







Henry Lewis Bullen

Type historian (b. Ballarat, Australia, 1857-1938), who worked at ATF in New Jersey, and who established the 12,000-volume Typographic Library and Museum in The American Type Founders Building, Jersey City, in 1908 (and which existed there until 1936). It thrived until ATF went bankrupt. In 1936 the Museum collection was acquired by Hellmut Lehmann-Haupt, curator of Rare Books at Columbia University's Butler Library, who was a friend of Bullen's. It is still at Columbia University today. Bullen did more than anyone in America to preserve typographic history, and for this, we have to be thankful.
