Series IV. References, 1951 - 2019


Scope and Contents

This series contains reference materials supporting this collection through their relevance to Zapf and his work. Materials include photographs, prints, clippings, correspondence, pro forma invoices, calendar, slides, cassette tape, and graphic materials. Note that the American Association for University Presses (AAUP) presentation was given twice by David Pankow and involved four projectors with slides shown simultaneously and supplemented by a cassette tape that controlled the presentation. Photographs include those taken at events, from a calligraphy class at RIT (1985), and chalk calligraphy (flat file S-4.7, folder 1).
