6076 Wrought Iron Range '24 Letterhead Stevens Andres Northampton Culver Academy

6076 Wrought Iron Range 1924 letterhead St Louis, Stevens & Andres, Northampton MA Henry & Wallace Culver, Culver Military AcademyExcellent condition w/ normal mailing fold-lines.This family and company was a major moving force in philanthropy and manufacturing. The stove company was possibly the largest stove maker in the country in the late 19th century. The Culvers grappled with the problems of cast iron being brittle and high breakage rates. Their solution was to turn to wrought iron to replace cast iron. There solution was good and they moved into a primary position of stove making.A curious vignette of the Culver’s early business history was that they became involved with selling clocks made by Seth Thomas - a cabinet wall calendar clock in particular. On one of the trips to sell clocks, the Culver brothers’ wagons were stolen by Jesse James.Involved with philanthropy, the Culver family was responsible for founding Culver Military Academy. On this letterhead’s masthead, on the right, is the seal for the Academy, and the text: Culver Military Academy, Culver Indiana, built and operated by owners of Wrought Iron Range Company.This letterhead is a remnant of a family and a company that was very much a participant of the early manifestations of what would in the 20th century be referred to as the American Dream. The Culver Family story is one of American perseverance, determination, and the emergence of the good side of American Capitalism. And this company was what gave the family the ability to realize success in philanthropy and community service.Details:
