The prolific Mr. Lauschke, a German immigrant, assigned 13 design patents to the Barnhart brothers Arthur and Alson or to the Barnhart Brothers & Spindler [BBS] corporation (Chicago) in 1886–1889; in collaboration with Julius Schmohl,¹ an additional nine in 1890–1897.
US (patent, immigration/naturalization, military, census) and Illinois state (birth, marriage, death) records yield the following information about him…
Patent application dates of typefaces designed by Lauschke and assigned to BBS. With one exception (Cellini, Keystone TF 1890), no approved design patent applications submitted by him were assigned to others.
Patent application dates of typefaces designed by Lauschke and Julius Schmohl assigned to BBS or to Mather Manufacturing Company/Keystone TF (Philadelphia):
¹Note that the surname/maiden name “Schmohl” is the same; perhaps Julius and Lizzie/Elizabeth were siblings?
In 1886–1889, design patent applications inconsistently read that Lauschke was “a citizen of the United States” or “a subject of the Emperor of Germany.”
