Material collected by J. S. Brothers pertaining to the glass industry and glass objects, collected between the 1920s and 1975, but published earlier than 1920. Includes information copied from books and periodical articles, ads, actual copies of newspaper and magazine articles, etc.
Information on the history of glass manufacture by state. Not every state is represented, but some such as Pennsylvania and New York are well covered. Includes typed notes from government documents, gazeteers, city directories, trade journals. Contains little original material. Intended to be used with the alphabetical factory files. However, the state-by-state approach offers some good overviews of the industry in that state.
