Is there a freely available rendering of the font used in this Paper? Is it some "standard" typewriter font used in 70s by any chance?

I immediately thought, "IBM Selectric" when I looked at the paper you linked to.

I did a little searching and found someone had scanned their IBM Selectric typeball fonts: [http://typebarhead.blogspot.com/2012/04/ibm-selectric-typeball-fonts.html][1]

I'm pretty darn sure it's Letter Gothic 12. Look at the lowercase L and R for comparison. Looks the same to me.
