Hewett Joural Box Patent


Well, I found the Hewett journal box patent – for the lid.  Interesting it is in the name of Susemihl & Hewitt, although in the reissue Susemihl assignes it to Hewitt.

Patent #192,199
Reissue #8,947

Used by many standard and narrow gauge railroads, including the CP and SP, the Carson & Colorado, and others.  Hewett shared offices in Chicago with the Thielsen truck folks.
