Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Accounting and Bookkeeping 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:
Covers a variety of tools, hand tools, and machinery including cutters, dies, measurement tools, rules, lathes, crimping devices, clamps, drills, and related precision tools.

Materials represent a sampling of merchant and services transactions, but there are no full business records for any single entity. This category has a large volume of catalogues present and a few examples of industry reports and technical documentation.

With the industries and trades represented in this category, there is significant overlap with Hardware, Instruments, and Mensuration.
Arrangement:
Tools is arranged in three subseries.

Provenance:
Tools 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 descriptions
Archival materials

Photographs
Date:
1870-1957.
Scope and Contents:
The collection includes many photographs and engravings of various types of Whitney wood working machines. These are mounted on stiff backings and include advertising and promotional materials for reproduction in trade journals and other publications. A historical summary, "The Baxter D. Whitney Story", is reprinted from the January 1957 issue of the Wood Worker and presents much information on the company's long record.
Biographical / Historical:
Baxter D. Whitney began building a planing machine in Winchendon, Massachusetts in 1837. He continued to head the company which he founded to manufacture woodworking machines until 1900, when he relinquished the position to his son W. M. Whitney, who served as president of Baxter D. Whitney, Inc. until his death in 1953. Control of the firm then passed to a group of senior managers of the company and manufacturing operations were transferred to the Newman Machine Co. in Greensboro, N.C., while a sales organization was maintained under the Whitney name in Winchendon.

The Whitney family, through marriage, was related to the Murdock family. While the Whitneys produced woodworking machines, Murdok's company manufactured woodenware products for a century. Eventually, the Whitneyss managed E. Murdock and Co. for over twenty years. Please refer to collection number 268 for further information.
Provenance:
This collection was donated by the Winchendon Historical Society, Incorporated, April 1986.
Restrictions:
This collection is open for research use.
