CHARLES G. CURTIS
Brief letter on stationery of his International Curtis Marine Turbine Company
Typed Letter signed: "Chas. G. Curtis", 1 page, 8x7½. New York, N. Y., 1937 March 5. On letterhead of the International Curtis Marine Turbine Company to Mr. Horace C. Tracy, Dayton, Ohio, in full: "In response to your letter of March 3rd, I take pleasure in giving you my autograph. Very truly yours". American engineer and inventor Charles Gordon Curtis (1860-1953) invented the Curtis Steam Engine, suitable for steamship propulsion, and sold the patent to General Electric in 1901. (He preferred to leave marketing to others, so he could concentrate on design.) This system proved valuable not just in transportation, but in steam-powered electricity generating plants. Curtis developed the first functioning gas turbine on the American continent (1914), winning the Holley Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers for this achievement. His International Curtis Marine Turbine Company built turbine propulsion systems under contract to the Royal Navy. He also made improvements to internal combustion engine design, and a propulsion system for torpedoes. Multiple folds. Creased and toned. Adhesive residue on verso with show through. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
