Preface When I started

Preface When I started collecting staplers, I quickly discovered several facts. There was no written history available. There were only a few collectors known. Collecting staplers wasn’t considered a hobby and what information that was available was inaccurate. There were in fact, other machines that were used to fasten papers or documents together. These machines were fasteners and not staplers. At times it was difficult to stay within the boundary of desk top stapler. It was easier to collect fasteners as a whole.

The questions were pursued until an answer was found or until it was determined that, for now, an answer was not available. Of the few stapler companies still around, only Swingline responded to my request. As it turned out, they did have a one page history of the stapler. Their simple act of kindness was greatly responsible for the foundation of the history that I have built over the last 15 years. Many other companies refused to respond. It was my own conclusion that they never maintained their own history because it was not a priority. I discovered this when I wrote to the President of one of the large companies as I was attempting to date a very early example they had produced. Even after providing a copy of the patent and a photograph of the machine. He could not find any reference to this machine. He referred the matter to a
