     Biographical note 
 Born in a small town near Ironton, Ohio in 1879, Chauncey Hawley Griffith moved with his family to Lexington, Kentucky when he was ten years old. As a young adult, he worked in several capacities for the Lexington news and print industry. He started at the  Lexington Morning Transcript  as a route carrier and in 1898 managed the advertisement room for the   Lexington Herald,   where Griffith first had occasion to work with Linotype machinery. In 1906, Griffith began working as a salesman based in New Orleans for the Mergenthaler Linotype Company. He transferred to the New York office in 1915, where he worked as assistant to the president and managed type designing and matrix manufacture until he was elected by the board as Vice President for Typographic Development in 1936.  During his many years at Mergenthaler, Griffith championed economical typeface design and print legibility. He was instrumental in improving the readability of newspaper fonts, particularly with the design of Ionic No. 5, which, introduced in 1926, was  the first face specifically designed for newspaper reproduction. It was an instantaneous success and more papers used it than any other typeface at any other time. From this grew the entire family of the famed Linotype Legibility Group: Excelsior, Opticon, Paragon, and Corona.  In 1938, Griffith designed the Bell Gothic typeface for maximum legibility in telephone books, where small type and newsprint paper often hindered readability.  Griffith resurrected and adapted numerous historic typefaces, including Baskerville, Janson, Excelsior, Granjon, Monticello, and Poster Bodoni. He also adapted a host of foreign language characters to the Linotype, including Amharic, Devanagari, and other Eastern scripts.  In addition to Griffith's own typeface projects, he solicited renowned artists William Addison Dwiggins and Rudolph Ruzicka to produce original typeface designs for Mergenthaler. Dwiggins's typefaces Caledonia and Electra, along with Ruzicka's Fairfield and Primer, were designed under Griffith's direction and are considered part of  the nucleus of what has been called the American classics of type.   Griffith retired from Mergenthaler in 1949, but continued to work for the company as a consultant until his death in 1956. Sources: Much Lexington Newspaper History Given By C. H.
