“Stop Mis-Filing!” 1913 Office Publication


“Stop Mis-Filing! Use this New ‘Y and E’ Direct Name system of Vertical Filing” is the title of a trade publication from Yawman and Erbe Mfg. Co. of Boston, MA.  It is part of a collection of trade literature and mechanical equipment catalogues found within the records of the Winthrop C. Durfee Dye Company, 1890s-1929 at the Claire T. Carney Library Archives and Special Collections.  The records document the professional life of an independant drysalter and chemist-merchant that provides information on the commercial textile-dyeing industry in the United States at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th.  There are several trade flyers and catalogues selling the latest in office supplies, furnishings, filing systems and document duplication systems in the early 20th century.
