<<
 I am seeking chapter and verse on the banning of Black-Letter/Fraktur
 by Adolf Hitler in 1941.
  >>

You might try contacting the Cooper-Hewitt Museum here in New York, which
recently held an exhibition on the history and background of blackletter usage
in Germany. Also, do a back-issue search on the NY Times Web site, as they ran
an article about the exhibit. The article was headed "A Typeface As Symbol Of
National Pride" and was written by Michael Z. Wise.
