    Howard Clock Co. records, saved by Dana Blackwell in 1960, were donated to the Smithsonian after his death by his widow, Verna Blackwell. They were scanned and digitized through a joint effort financed in part by the NAWCC. Frank Delgreco was instrumental in this effort. Smithsonian volunteers have completed word and number searchable transcriptions of all but one of the ledgers. I have uploaded a finding aid in the form of an Excel spreadsheet. Please provide questions or comments.

    The attached papers provide additional information on the Howard records. One relates Donn Haven Lathrop's list of Howard tower and street clocks to the Blackwell/NAWCC records. The other provides a way to estimate the date of sale for a Howard clock from the order number. It also includes a graph linking serial numbers to dates for the period 1905 - 1930.
