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.

Introduction:
From the State of Michigan, ninety of its residents came to the 1987 Festival to speak about and demonstrate some of the rich traditional culture from that region. To help create a festival setting in which performers of valued traditions could speak about their experiences and heritages with performed music, active demonstrations, and spoken words seemed a most appropriate way to celebrate the sesquicentennial of that geographically endowed, historically important and culturally rich state.

Throughout Michigan's history those who migrated to the state have been drawn by - or have themselves introduced - fishing, trapping, mining, lumbering, farming, and automobile manufacturing. The lore of such occupations, combined with the rich ethnic heritage of those who built Michigan, form the essence of the state's traditional culture. Michigan today is home to more than one hundred different nationalities, including the country's largest population of Finns, Belgians, Maltese, and Chaldeans; the second largest numbers of Dutch, Lebanese, and French Canadians; and perhaps the largest concentration of Muslim Arabs (in southeast Dearborn) outside the Middle East. Detroit alone is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the country. The heritage of these diverse groups - along with those of Native, Euro Americans, and Afro Americans who migrated to Michigan throughout the state's history - give Michigan folklife its distinctive characteristics.

Complementing a full performance schedule that highlighted Michigan's diverse musical heritage, ongoing demonstrations included lure making, fly tying, boat building, Native American quillwork, black ash basketry, finger weaving and beadwork, Dutch wooden shoe making, furniture carving, Afro American quilt making, Palestinian needlework, Ukrainian textiles and egg decorating, ski and sleigh making, decoy carving, rag rug weaving, cherry harvesting & pruning, evergreen nursery techniques, net making, and ice fishing.

Betty Belanus, Laurie Sommers, and Thomas Vennum, Jr. served as Curators for the Michigan program, with Laurie Sommers also serving as Program Coordinator and Barbara Lau, as Assistant Program Coordinator.

The Michigan Program was made possible by the Michigan Sesquicentennial Commission and the Michigan Department of State.

Introduction:
The third program to focus on a particular State, the Arkansas presentations at the 1970 Festival sought to give visitors an overview of the State's folklife and to present an intensive picture of the persistence and variety of the area's folk cultural patterns. The Swiss and Italians who settled in Arkansas in the late nineteenth century with the black farmers of the delta and with the mountaineers, whose forebears hailed from Britain, are contributors to the patchwork of traditional cultures characterizing the State of Arkansas. Festival programming sought to emphasize this diversity and mutual influence. Musician Jimmy Driftwood loaded up a bus with dozens of his friends and neighbors from Mountain View and nearby Ozark communities and drove two days to Washington. Other presentations included electric blues from West Memphis and black gospel singing, as well as various string band traditions. Craft presentations included chairmakers, musical instrument makers, tool makers, and decorative arts, as well as makers of wine and sorghum.

Sponsorship for the Arkansas presentation came from the Honorable Winthrop Rockefeller, Governor of Arkansas, the Arkansas State Parks Recreation-Travel, and the Crossett Art League.

Family Night was created by the Research Division to acquaint families with their work and explain how they contribute to the research effort of the company. Activities included demonstrations and displays of various machines.

There are employee cards, 1908-1917, which consist of index cards, arranged alphabetically by employee surname that detail the kind of work (planer, grinder, laborer, tool maker), age, marital status, where the person last worked, where they worked the longest, if they were interviewed, home address, when they began work, and if they retired or were discharged, with a reason.

From 1907 to 1940 the United Shoe sponsored the "Sam Sam" festival which included carnival rides, midway games, and entertainment for its employees and their families. Images of the "Sam Sam can be found in Series 17: Photographs, Subseries 10: Glass Plate Negatives.

Notes content:
machinist and tool maker grinding rolls ; watchmakers' and jewelers' tools ; according to a web site, Pool constructed a phonograph for Edison: "This 'carte de visite'-sized photograph was taken on August 21, 1878, by Edison's nephew Charles Pitt Edison, the official laboratory photographer at the time. It shows a large phonograph made for Edison by Alex Pool of Newark, NJ. Ten prototypes were made but none are known to survive -- all that remains of that interesting machine are a few surviving pictures. The back of the photo carries a rubber-stamped notation that it is from Edison's Menlo Park laboratory and is signed and dated by Charlie." However this appears to be an unproven assertion ; http://members.aol.com/tinfoilphono/ephemer2.htm
