Title: William Wheatley: A Retrospective
Author: Kaup, Melissa K.
Abstract: William F. Wheatley was an active participant during the "turbulent" typesetting years. His first years in the typographic field were spent working beside Bently Raak at Varityper Corporation. They worked with character designs for the Varityper and the Headliner "cold-type" line of machines and moved into collaborating with Photon, Inc. for photo typesetting machines. As the necessity for typographic experience increased for foreign languages, Mr. Wheatley was transferred to Varityper s European division. In the daily effort of obtaining typefaces and designing proper character sets, he became associated with many of the European type foundries and companies. Mr. Wheatley's experience in the field also includes the Compugraphic Corporation in Europe and the Itek Corporation in the U.S., which has led to multiple typographic consulting assignments.
