My boss is looking for the font used by the History Channel for its "H" logo.
I have not been able to find it yet.
Any help out there?

Not sure what the base font is, but it's beveled with a bevel tool, not a font that I'm aware of (not one where you can just type and have that appear).

You can use any font, then use the Bevel tool and you'll end up with something like this :

It's a crude example, but you get the idea.

Here it is as a CorelDraw X3 vector drawing. It is in black and white, I have the color one if you'd like me to email it to you.

If you need the logo, it's available on brandsoftheworld.com

As for text, a quick google search came up with:

The History Channel was adapted
from Birch and modified on an old
Mac 2CI to my idea of better logo
type. In addition to the small caps also
note the smoother S the wider base
on the R and the bottom serif on the
C. The O is also wider as is the
A.

Google birch font and you'll find several sources for the font.
