ABOUT







Empire Type Foundry [Claude Persons]

The Empire Type Foundry of Delevan, New York was established in 1893 remaining active until it's demise in 1970. According to Annenberg, this foundry was not a part of, or affiliated with, The older Empire State Foundry, which apparently closed at least a year prior to the opening of The Empire Type Foundry. Even though the casters used by Empire were Monotype machines, the type produced was well formed and of a high quality. It was initially owned by Wilbur F. Persons and Claude Persons. A picture of fists from the catalog #18, published in 1923.
