The companies were located primarily in the Northeastern United States including New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, with several from other areas in the United States and a few from England and Canada. A number of the companies were located in Troy, New York, known as the collar city, as noted on the city of Troy, New York web site, www.troyny.gov. Some of the materials document family owned and operated businesses. The materials also reflect the changing ownerships and partnerships for many of the businesses. Materials are arranged in alphabetical order by the name of the company. When the name of the company was not available the materials were organized by brand name.

Other materials include import and export documents, a list of merchandise (1896), a merchandise receipt (1896) and a parcel receipt (1896). There are a number of forms including an Immediate Transportation in Bond Without Appraisement form (1896), a form from Hampton & Larzelere, Custom House Brokers of Philadelphia (1876), a form "To be endorsed on, or attached by seal and tape to, each of the triplicate invoices" (1876), a notation of "Liquidated Duty" (1876), Receipt (1889), Receipt "for liquidation " (1890), "For Liquidation" (1897), advertisements, a business card, and an advertising coin, and forms for "Free Entry of Articles Intended for use of Colleges, Schools, &c"(1884).

Series 1: Business Ephemera

Series 4: Photographic Reference Material
Provenance:
Men's Clothing is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.

Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.
Rights:
Collection items available for reproduction, but the Archives Center makes no guarantees concerning copyright restrictions. Other intellectual property rights may apply. Archives Center cost-recovery and use fees may apply when requesting reproductions.
