Friedrich von Huegel (1852-1925) was the son of an Austrian baron who was a naturalist and diplomat. His mother was a Scot convert to Catholicism. The family moved from Florence to England in 1867, where Friedrich lived the rest of his life. He was a leading Roman Catholic philosopher of religion. Roger R. Hilleary was born in Los Angeles; his parents were California natives of 3rd (maternal) and 4th (paternal) generations. Hilleary graduated from Pomona College in 1953 and went to work for the U.S. Navy as a ballisticsian at the Naval Ordnance Test Station, China Lake. In 1962 Hilleary transferred to the Computer Center at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, where he became involved in the Catholic Diocese of Monterey. Working with Ed Petko, who gave Hilleary his first Chandler and Price pilot press and a reconditioned Columbian press, Roger Hilleary printed and bound 22 books, most of them miniatures.
