Before 1937, telephone books were printed in a variety of typefaces and consequently were often difficult to decipher. Because of his successful work on the legibility problems of newspaper typefaces, Chauncey H. Griffith was hired to develop a typeface that would compact enough to fit large amounts of information on a page while being legible at small sizes even when printed under less than desirable conditions.
This face is designed to used at a text size of 6.0 points.
