Abstract:

Papers of Erastus B. Bigelow, Massachusetts inventor, engineer, and economist, who held several patents for substantial improvements in power looms for carpet and other cloth manufacturing. The collection contains business correspondence, legal agreements, patents, memoranda, writings, accounts, receipts, plans, and specifications for Bigelow's inventions and improvements to power looms, and documents his dealings with various mills and carpet manufacturing companies, including his own Bigelow Carpet Company, the Clinton Company, and the Lowell Manufacturing Company. Also represented in the collection are James S. Amory, Carpmael & Co. (patent agents), John Crossley & Sons, Thomas F. Firth, George W. Lyman, Charles Mason, Justin S. Morrill, Henry S. Randall, A. B. Stoughton, and many others. Included is considerable material related to the tariff and protectionist policy in United States trade, as well as Bigelow's correspondence with and numerous petitions to the U.S. commissioner of patents.

Volumes include one entitled "Extracts from the private journal of Alexander Wright" (1845-1850), which concerns Bigelow's power loom inventions; three letterbooks containing copies of outgoing business correspondence (1851-1858), memoranda, and a short journal of a business trip to England (1847-1848); a memoranda book on trade and the tariff (ca. 1877); a disbound scrapbook of clippings covering Bigelow's life, the carpet industry, and protectionism; and two volumes containing records of his various patents. Oversize material consists of patents and drawings for Bigelow's inventions.
