What are the most used typefaces in 1950s?

Hi,
I am trying to find typefaces to use for a book that was published in 1950s. Besides Lydian, I was wondering what other typefaces were used very often in 1950s' graphic design? Thank you.

Futura and Times New Roman were the two fonts used on our university newspaper late 50's . Hope that helps
