I saw this font in a 1920s pamphlet from The Science League of America that I acquired in Chicago many years ago. I loved the type but couldn't identify it, because it wasn't commercially available anymore. I made my own version based on the pamphlet and named it Shipley, after Maynard Shipley, the president of the Science League who passionately defended science education and the teaching of evolutionary theory. Years later I was finally able to identify the source font as Kennerley, originally designed by Frederic Goudy. I think it's a really beautiful text font. I have several versions: a crisp, clean Roman and Italic, and four rougher weights to capture the feel of old metal type.
