After searching online I found 19 patents issued to my grandfather, an engineer for Singer Sewing Machines. He was an engineer who developed among the first button-holer, as well as several other devices. His last invention, the baseball sewing machine, was never patented because Singer decided it was cheaper to have Haitians do them by hand.
|Uncle Peter recently discovered and sent me the papers from one of the hoaxes he did with Dad, the Mushrooms of Zanzibar. I scanned them, transcribed them, and made them available here for family or anyone else interested.
And here is another one he found and I got online:
The Great Abominable Snowman Hunt
may not sell as well but the pictures are better
