Abstract:

The records of the S.S. White Dental Manufacturing Company are relatively complete. The greater part of the collection is concerned with patents, since the company maintained its competitive edge by constant improvement and innovation and was thus dependent upon patent protection.

Administrative records include acts of incorporation, bylaws and amendments, minutes of stockholder meetings and biographies of James W. White (president 1881-1891) and S.S. White, Jr. (president 1912-1915). There are also papers relating to the subsidiary F.W. Stewart Corp. and to the estate of J. Clarence White.

Accounts include general ledgers, ledgers from foreign branch offices, records of patent royalties, balance sheets, sales records, and sales statistics.

Correspondence and patent records include letters from dentists seeking to interest S.S. White in their inventions and reports on inventions and improvements in dental instruments and equipment. Also included is correspondence relating to marketing and sales, patent assignments, agreements, infringements, and trademarks.

Patent application and invention files document the development of dental equipment (instruments, chairs, appliances), cements, fillings, amalgams, and alloys; dental machinery (engines, vulcanizers, sterilizers); impression trays, mouth mirrors, gas administering apparatus; cleansers, absorbents; articulators; dentimeters, inhalers; tooth powders; dental plates; work benches; tool charts and dental card record forms; mouth illuminators; jaw props; removable bridges; teeth separators; matrix retainers; and other equipment. This apparatus and equipment is depicted in photographs and trade catalogs.

Patent notebooks include records from the Patents & Projects Department, containing records of changes in products, new products, discontinuance of manufacture, disposition of patents, trademarks and designs. There are also price lists and an article on the use of electricity in dentistry. The legal papers are primarily concerned with patent infringement suits. The printed items include product information and patent and trademark descriptions of dental equipment made by the company and its competitors.

S. S. White's personal papers include some record of an 1872 partnership between White and Elisha Gray to develop a system of electro-harmonic telegraphy, including agreements between White, Gray, Thomas Edison and printed patents concerning the telephone and telegraph inventions of Gray, Alexander Graham Bell and others.

The miscellany includes catalogues and imprints as well as scattered issues of THE DENTAL COSMOS.
