John Knapp

There are several excellent entries in the LEADHEAD'S PENCIL BLOG by Jonathan Veley, tracing John Knapp's activities in New York's pencil case business in the mid-late 1800's, and the variety of well-known partners that he had over the years. At some point Knapp ended up on his own, and on February 6, 1872, Knapp filed patent #123,485.
