ABOUT







Morgans&Wilcox Mfg Co. [William T. Morgans]

American wood type manufacturer from the 19th century, set up in 1880 by William T. Morgans and H.K. Wilcox. The latter had taken over Young's shares at Young and Morgans Mfg Co., prompting a company name change. It was located in Middletown, NY.

On-line 1890 catalog by Robert Lee. On page 22, that 1890 catalog even shows a typeface called Belgian.

Some digitizations can be found. See, for example, HWT Geometric (2013, James Grieshaber, Hamilton Wood Type Foundry). This is a squarish wood type family based on a design by Gustave F. Schroeder from 1881, as explained by HWT: Geometric began its life as a metal typeface from the Central Type Foundry, circa 1884. Soon after, this design was officially licensed to Morgans & Wilcox and was shown in their 1890 catalog in Regular, Light and Condensed Light variations. After acquiring Morgans & Wilcox, Hamilton Manufacturing offered Geometric Light Face Condensed as their own No 3020 and the Geometric Light Face as No 3021. HWT Geometric has been expanded digitally to include a Regular Condensed version. Dick Pape designed AWT Morgans Wilcox Doric Cond in 2013. Matt Braun (Wood Type Revival) designed French Octagon (2016) based on a Morgans&Wilcox model. Cosmopolitan (1890s) was revived by Matt Braun in 2016.
