Biographical / Historical:
Charles Richardson Pratt (1860-1935), was born in Massachusetts to John C. and Mary Anne Richardson. He graduated from the Hopkins School of Boston and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1879. Pratt worked at Whittier Machine Company of Boston (1882-1890) where he designed and built the first electric elevator in 1888. The elevator was installed in the Tremont House, Boston. Pratt also worked as an agent and later as a consulting engineer for the Otis Elevator Company, the inventors of the hydraulic elevator.

Pratt was best known for his development of the first electrically powered elevator. In 1892, inventor Frank Sprague (1857-1934) founded the Sprague Electric Elevator Company, and with Charles R. Pratt developed the Sprague-Pratt Electric Elevator. They demonstrated that electrically powered elevators were capable of competing with hydraulic elevators. Pratt held several engineering positions and worked for the Marine Engine Company of Newark, New Jersey (1902-1905) developing elevator systems; consulting engineer to the Universal Speed Control Company of New York City (1906-1919); consultant to the American Engineering Company of Philadelphia (1912); mechanical superintendent at the Crocker Wheel Company of Ampere, New Jersey (1919); engineer for the E. Horton and Sons Company of Connecticut (1920-1923); the General Tractors Corporation (1924-1927); and was associated with the Watson Elevator Company of New York City (1928-1930). Pratt patented many of his ideas, earning over thirty-five patents related mostly to elevators,

Pratt was a member of the Masons, the Sons of the American Revolution, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the MIT Club of New Jersey, and the Motor Club of London. He married Mary Byron Ladd and they had two children, Gertrude Ladd Pratt and Donald Richardson Pratt.
Provenance:
This collection was purchased from Charles R. Pratt's daughter, Gertrude Pratt Vance, in 1973.

1913-1945
Scope and Contents:
Includes four volumes of research notes created by Royce Beers. Notebook one dates from 1913-1920 and is a six-ring, Lefax pocket notebook filled with notes, drawings, and calculations. There is an article on airplane stability written by Orville Wright in 1917. There are also detailed notes on the six-day "hospital diet" fed to Beers' wife at Columbia Hospital following the birth of their child on October 16, 1916. Notebook two dates from 1913-1921 and is also a six-ring, Lefax pocket notebook filled with notes, drawings, and calculations with various reference tables and technical articles printed and sold by the Lefax Corporation of Philadelphia. The third engineering notebook dates from circa 1914-1922 and is, like volumes one and two, a six-ring, Lefax pocket notebook filled with Beers' notes, drawings, and calculations. Included in the notebook are three copies of the 2.5 x 4.25-inch Ringlemann scale for grading the density of smoke. The fourth engineering notebook dates from circa 1919-1945 and contains Beer's field notes, drawings, calculations, and copies of correspondence, data tables, and salesmen's bulletins. The notes and correspondence address such topics as how the Nestle's Milk Products Company could burn coffee grounds for fuel (1941), how to dry fish and beet sugar pulp and garbage incineration (1939). There is also a photographic postcard with an image of a working stoker. The notebooks are arranged in chronological order.
