Frederic Goudy designed Powell for a "Mr. Powell" of the Mandel Brothers Chicago department store in 1907. This face bears resemblance to Pabst but with a larger lowercase and shorter descenders. This face resembles the copy of Goudy hand lettering released by Inland Foundry in 1902. The naming of the font Hearst (P22 Kane
) was the cause of some controversy
. Powell was Goudy's reclaiming of his own lettering design. The italic was designed by the Lanston Drawing office.
