Series IV: Factory Order Cards

This series contains index cards that list the numerous projects for which the Company supplied and/or installed its tiles. The cards are not comprehensive; however, they provide the most complete list of projects. In addition to the job number and title, the cards provide information on the number and type of tiles, shipping instructions, and cost. The dates of the cards span 1900-1961. The material in this series is arranged by job number (1-877).

This series also includes a box of index cards unrelated to the Company or its projects. The unidentified cards list the names of authors, scholars, and publishers pertaining to the publishing of the journal, Romanic Review.
