Abstract: This collection consists of the records of the E. & H. T. Anthony & Company. The materials date between 1859 and 1917 and comprise legal documents, correspondence, patent applications, and various photographic process formulas.

Scope & Contents: The Anthony Company records originate from various members of the Anthony family. The records, which range in date from 1859 to 1917, pertain primarily to manufacturing papers and other photographic apparatus sold by the various companies that bore the Anthony name. The material dates from two periods: The era when brothers Edward and Henry T. Anthony ran the company until their deaths; and documents produced by Richard A. and Frederick A. Anthony, the latter of whom made numerous efforts to patent his ideas for the advancement of projection and motion picture technology.

Creation of this finding aid was made possible in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, grant #MA-30-15-0019-15.
