American architect Bertram Goodhue was born on this day in 1869. I went Church Hopping to the Church of the Intercession in Washington Heights and St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Midtown, two churches he co-designed in New York.
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! In 1896, Goodhue designed a typeface for Cheltenham Press. Called Cheltenham, the typeface is the one used for the headline for The New York Times.
