Herreshoff Mfg. Co.
1878-1943
www.herreshoff.org

Formed as a partnership between John Brown Herreshoff and his younger brother, Nathaniel. Though the reputation of the latter is well established, it was the elder Herreshoff (who was blind), that kept the finances in order. So important was his role that company was sold very shortly after his death.


The Herreshoff Museum has a website, listed below. A visit to the museum is certainly worth the trip even for the casual enthusiast. Others might find themselves looking for longer term accommodations.

Over 14,000 plans and related design records were loaned to MIT when the firm was closed by the General Manager, Rudolph F. Haffenreffer (MIT Class of 1895).
In 1961, the Haffenreffer Family donated the collection to MIT. A 218 page guide is available at MIT Museum or by mail from the Hart curator.
