John Henry Nash, 1871-1947, Canadian-born typographer, came to San Francisco in 1895, and became associated with the Tomoyé Press. He later joined the printing firm of Taylor & Taylor (1911-1915) before founding his own press for fine printing in 1916. His publications varied from Dante's The Divine Comedy to writings by local authors, all done in a grandiose style. In 1936 Nash and his library became affiliated with the University of Oregon.
