Arthur Watson EATON

Hurlbut's High Grade Papers
Hurlbut Stationery Co., Pittsfield, Mass.

The Ladies' Home Journal
February 1898

In 1893, Arthur W. Eaton, then president of the Hurlbut Paper Manufacturing Company of South Lee, organized the Hurlbut Stationery Company, in association with William A. Pike of the firm of Hard and Pike, which conducted a modest manufactory of stationery in the city of New York. Pittsfield, rather than South Lee, was finally selected as the headquarters of the enterprise; and the plant of Hard and Pike was removed
from New York to the factory on South Church Street, which had been erected in 1883 for the Terry Clock Company, and had for a year been disused. The purchase of this building by
Mr. Eaton personally in 1893 probably caused the new industry to be established in Pittsfield. There, in August, 1893, the Hurlbut Stationery Company began its course.
