Again, from McGrew:

"Cloister Black was introduced by ATF in 1904. Its design is generally
credited to Joseph W. Phinney, of ATF's Boston foundry, but some
authorities give some or all of the credit to Morris Benton."

McGrew's "American Metal Typefaces of the Twentieth Century" is a great
resource and y'all should consider getting a copy. I highly recommend it:
