I'm tending to agree with Gordon's thought that it's a generic logo,
especially after Scot's additional info.

I'm pretty sure it's not Erasmus since Haldeman-Julius was vociferously
anti-Catholic. It looks like a generic image to me rather than one meant to
represent a specific individual -- maybe a crusading editor or printer with
a long galley proof. Haldeman-Julius's autobiographical book The First
Hundred Million (Simon and Schuster 1928) isn't indexed and has no
illustrations. There's a sizable literature about Haldeman-Julius so maybe
you could find the answer there. You could also contact the Leonard H. Axe
Library at Pittsburg State Univerity in Pittsburg, Kansas, which has a
Haldeman-Julius collection.
