Rest in peace Leslie Buck.

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.
