Biography of C. V. Broughton


Boughton, C. V., Buffalo, has been established in his present business since 1886, at which time he patented a car seal for sealing car doors in transit. He then organized the Buffalo Seal and Press Company, under the laws of the State of New York, for the purpose of manufacturing, and since the beginning has produced mulions of these articles yearly, finding his market over the entire world. His latest success is the Telephotos, an instrument that gives free communication between vessels at sea from lighthouses as well as upon land. This instrument has been adopted by the United States and English navies. It is very rapid, and messages to the extent of 480 words have been transmitted to ships six and eight miles distance in thirty-one minutes. Mr. Boughton has this invention patented all over the world and covered by some eighty patents.
