1Title:  Wellman-Seaver-Morgan Company, Cleveland, Ohio, Photographs     
 Creator:  Wellman-Seaver-Morgan Company 
 Dates:  1900-1910 
 Abstract:  The Wellman-Seaver-Morgan Company was a pioneer manufacturer of steel plant equipment with an international reputation for engineering some of the largest material-handling projects ever built. The firm started in 1896 as the Wellman-Seaver Engineering Company in Cleveland, Ohio, founded by the inventor of the first open-hearth furnace in the U.S., Samuel T. Wellman, his brother, Charles H. Wellman, and John W. Seaver, to engineer and design steel mills and industrial plant equipment. One of the company's executives, George Huelett, invented the Hulett unloader, which revolutionized the Great Lakes ore industry. The collection consists of one album containing forty-two photographs of ship and railroad unloading machinery, eight loose photographs of ship unloaders and coke dumpers, and one blueprint of a railroad car dumper.
