You may not recognize the name, but you’ll certainly recognize Leslie Buck’s iconic contribution to the urban coffee culture — the Anthora cup, which was released in the 1960s. Mr. Buck was a refugee from Nazi Europe and fled to the US following the war. He and his brother, Eugene, opened a business in the States called Premiere Cup, out of which grew the famous Anthora cup design. You can read more about Leslie Buck in this NY Times’ article.
Rest in peace Leslie Buck.
