The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 18, April 30, 2006, Article 23

MARBURG'S PUBLICATIONS

Dan Freidus writes: "Again, an item in The E-Sylum led me to do
some searching.  I was suspicious about the statement that Marburg's
dissertation had "never been published."  So I checked the company
formerly known as UMI, and before that as "University Microfilm
International" (and now calling themselves Proquest).  I found that
they do indeed have Marburg's dissertation (1942, not 1946):
Marburg's dissertation

I also found a few more possibly relevant tidbits:

Marburg, Theodore 1952.  Commission Agents in the Button and Brass
Trade a Century Ago. Bulletin of the Business Historical Society
16:8-18 (Feb 1952)

Marburg, Theodore F. 1954. A Study of Small Business Failure:
Smith & Griggs of Waterbury.  Business History Review. 28:366-384
(Dec 1954)

MARBURG, THEODORE F. 1956.  Small Business in Brass Fabricating:
The Smith & Griggs Manufacturing Co. of Waterbury. New York: NYU
Press.

The University of Connecticut library has records of Scovill
(about 6 shelf feet of paper) and American Brass (the company
that acquired Scovill; about 160 shelf feet of paper):

I suspect that these records would prove useful, though they are
likely to require a substantial investment of time.  I hope these
links help out Dick and/or the Wilsons."
