HIRAM P. MAXIM and HUDSON MAXIM
Hiram P. Maxim and Hudson Maxim signature's on individual cards.
Comprises: (1) HIRAM P. MAXIM.
Signature: "Hiram Percy Maxim/Hartford, Conn./March 27, 1923", 3½x2 card. Slightly soiled. Fine condition. (2) HUDSON MAXIM. Signature: "Compliments/of/Hudson Maxim/March - 26 - 1923.", 3½x2 card. Fine condition. HIRAM P. MAXIM (1896-1936) was the son of Hiram S. Maxim (1840-1916), the inventor of an early machine gun. An inventor like his father, Hiram P. promoted the Maxim Silencer for firearms, and then applied its principles to mufflers, air compressors and other machinery. Although Maxim's silencer was a permanent attachment to a rifle, it created a public era in an era of gangland violence. Many states and nations attempted to ban the silencer. His uncle, HUDSON MAXIM (1853-1927), the brother of Hiram S. Maxim, worked mostly with explosives, developing a high explosive (maximite), smokeless powders (one of them stabilite) and a self-combustive compound to propel torpedoes (motorite). His explosives were used extensively in WWI. The Maxims were born in the U.S., although Hiram S. became a British subject. Two items.
