H. Peter Kahn (1921 – 1997) is fondly remembered by generations of Cornell University students and by members of the Ithaca community as a man whose life was dedicated to the arts of fine printing and the handmade book. A prolific typographer, painter, illustrator, and book designer, the German-born artist lived in Ithaca for forty years. Regarding the Kahn Fellowship, his widow, Ruth Stiles Gannett Kahn, says, “It is an affirmation of Peter’s enthusiasm for graphic arts and his own life as a teacher.”
