Warshaw Collection of Business Americana Subject Categories: Electricity

Creator:
Warshaw, Isadore, 1900-1969  Search this
Extent:

Ephemera
Business ephemera

Date:
1856-1980
Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Electricity forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
The electricity section is one of the largest sections found in the Warshaw Collection. While the material in the collection does range from 1856 to 1980, the bulk of the material relates to the 1890-1915 time period. As such this material is a rich source of information concerning the early development of the electric industry when numerous smaller companies were in operation.

The material is present in a variety of formats. The most numerous, by far, are publications. These are in the form of general company publications, parts and product publications, journals, and a variety of more general publications. In addition, there are advertisements, company correspondence, photographs and post cards, and even a formal Thomas Edison signature from his Menlo Park days. For the most part the information in this section is directed towards the general public. However, there is a considerable amount of information created for dissemination within specific companies only.

Series 2: Other Collection Divisions

Series 3: Isadore Warshaw Personal Papers

Series 4: Photographic Reference Material
Provenance:
Electricity 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.
Restrictions:
Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.

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.
