Henry Born

Medals awarded to the Born Steel Range Company, Cleveland Ohio, by the World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893
Henry Born, as general manager and treasurer of the Born Steel Range & Manufacturing Co., conducts one of the largest and most modern equipped plants in the United States for the manufacture of steel ranges. Their lines of goods have been in the market longer than those produced by any other competing firm, and it is the aim of the company to maintain the high standard of excellence these ranges have won. At the World's Columbian International Exposition, held in Chicago, Ill., in 1893, medals were awarded the Born Steel Range Company for various specific merits and excellence of construction.

Their marine trade, in which they have been prominent for nineteen years, is not confined to ranges, however, as it is their custom to fit entire the steward's galley with whatever entered into that very necessary department in the outfit of a boat, be it a steamer or sailing vessel. There are, perhaps, not many new vessels launched from shipyards about the lakes that do not enter in the outfit specifications a Born steel range and the other articles in that line furnished by this house. The manufacturing works of the company are located at Cleveland, Ohio, and the offices and salesrooms are at Nos. 122 to 126 Superior street, Cleveland. The ranges are not only in great favor on steamships and sailing vessels on the lakes, but are in general demand on both the Atlantic and Pacific ocean-going vessels, and but recently large orders have been shipped to Delano Brothers, San Francisco, and to firms in New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, New Orleans, and all United States seaports. The United States navy has also adopted the Born steel range for use on war vessels. Thousands of testimonials on file in the offices of the company show that this make of range is in almost universal demand in private dwellings, restaurants and hotels, and that they have found place in almost every public house in Cleveland, and in public houses throughout the United States, as new and improved facilities are required in the kitchen.

Volume I

This version of Volume II is based, with permission, on the work of the great volunteers at the Marine Captains Biographies site. To them goes the credit for reorganizing the content into some coherent order. The biographies in the original volume are in essentially random order.

Some of the transcription work was also done by Brendon Baillod, who maintains an excellent guide to Great Lakes Shipwreck Research.
