the purpose of grouping together variants of a company's name, "Standard
Company Names" have been created. Thus "Remington Sewing Machine
Company", "Remington Works" and "E. Remington and
Sons" are all grouped under "Remington Sewing Machine Company."
Companies are alphabetized by the first significant letter of the name.
In the case of companies named after individuals, the company names are
alphabetized by the surname, e.g. "A.H. Supplee" is filed under
"S". Please select "Company Name on Item" for a list
of company names as transcribed from the item.
Name on Item
Company names are listed in strict alphabetical order by the name that
appears on the material. Thus, "A.H. Supplee" will appear before
"Central Necktie Machine Company". Additionally, alternate forms
of the same company name (e.g. "Brosius Sewing Machine and Motor
Company" and "Brosius Sewing Machine and Motor Oil of Chicago")
are both listed.
