MORE ON THE GORHAM CO. ARCHIVES
Regarding the Gorham Co. archives, Kay O. Freeman writes:
I have been there for silver symposiums and know Sam Hough, who is remarkable. He is also a rare book dealer in Cranston, RI. His company is called The Owl at the Bridge. (after Ambrose Bierce?). The website is owlbridge.com
There are lots of useful biographies of Gorham workmen and designers on the site. That is how I got interested in numismatics - because of the cross-over of medals, and other commemorative items, within silver companies IE Tiffany, Peter Krider (Philadelphia), Shreve (San Francisco) etc.
