One of the
most important parts of a serious tool collector's collection
is the written material used to research and learn about the
artifacts they accumulate. In 2003, for the Annual Meeting of
the Early American Industries Association, 14 articles by Paul
Kebabian on a variety of tools, toolmakers and early trades
were published as this collection. Kebabian, a librarian by
vocation, has had many of his writings on tools and
toolmakers appear in newsletters and journals such as ACTIVE,
Scrapbooks, and The Chronicle.
