Corliss (George H.) collection


The George H. Corliss collection consists of correspondence, business records, scrapbooks, awards, medals, and photographs relating to the life and activities of a leading nineteenth century inventor, engineer, and businessman. These papers are an important source of information concerning Corliss's early years as a merchant and his life-long involvement with a variety of mechanical inventions. Primarily, however, the materials serve as a valuable collection of business records, which reveal the growth and operations of the Corliss Steam Engine Company of Providence, Rhode Island.
