1Title:  Warner and Swasey Company Records     
 Creator:  Warner and Swasey Company 
 Dates:  1883-1970 
 Abstract:  The Warner and Swasey Company was a leading manufacturer of machine tools, especially turret lathes, and telescopes and optical equipment. By 1928, the company was the world's leading manufacturer of turret lathes, and during World War II produced half of all the turret lathes made in the United States. The company was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1881 by Worcester R. Warner, who had a passionate interest in astronomy, and Ambrose Swasey. The company was bought by the Bendix Corp. of Michigan in 1980, which was taken over by Allied in 1983, which, in turn, sold it to Cross and Trecker in 1984. The collection consists of a copy of a pictorial historical reference book, clippings, and miscellaneous articles and lists relating to the company's history.
