Shepard and Dudley Instruments and Sets

Research on the company

According to the research by Dr. Edmonson, Shepard and Dudley were not making or importing surgical instruments until 1870 when they purchased the Wm. Ford instrument business.  Until 1870, Shepard and Dudley were in the 'rubber goods' business, not surgical instruments and any set labeled for Shepard and Dudley at any address is post-Civil War.

Rubber Clothing Co. [also listed as F. M & W A. Shepard in

advertisements] (Frederick M. & William A. Shepard)

1860-70: 347 Broadway & 150 William 

(Note: Edmonson says they were not in the instrument business at this time, during 1860 to 70 they made or imported rubber goods, syringes, etc.

 

Shepard & Dudley (Frederick M. Shepard and Francis D. Dudley) surgical instruments

1870-75: 150 William

1876-77: 150 William and 33 Gold

1878-94: 150 William

 

Reference: Edmonson

Below is the 'New York's Great Industries, 1885', which lists Shepard and Dudley as having been in the instrument business since 1864.  ???  My guess would be that date is incorrect and I'll put my faith in Dr. Edmonson's research which was focused on the makers, thorough and extensive as opposed to unknown authors of a merchant listings in 1885.  Search Google books for detailed examples.
