I think I am having a font issue in the Anchor Bible Dictionary. The place it shows up the clearest is in the List of the contributors. The actual contributor name appears in some sort of Old English font while there description is perfectly fine. I have run the fontfixer utility but the problem still exists. What do I need to correct this?

I have included a screen image so that you can see what I am talking about.

Anchor uses our Rosetta font for all entries including these names. Your FontBook has added the Old English font to Rosetta, and though pretty I agree it's not practical. I have no idea why FontBook does this. Open FontBook, look at Rosetta, click the triangle and use the Preview menu to show info on each font. then remove the ones that don't belong. All you really need are those in Library/Fonts/Rosetta.famTrueType.

Accordance Fonts.PDF explains these steps in more detail.
