My grandfather Peter Dom, in an article about the typeface he created; from "American Printer", November 1952. He was born in Persia's capital, Teheran, of Armenian parents; arrived in this country in 1910 & studied at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. He had a desire to be a cartoonist, but fate led him to a job with Will Ransom, & later took a job as art director of J.M. Bundscho. He finished his career in Los Angeles in business with my dad, Jay Dom in the mid-60's.
