American Wood Type Co / Tubbs
One of at least three companies that went by some configuration of the name ‘American Wood Type. “The 19th-century American Wood Type Co was founded by Charles Henry Tubbs in 1879 in South Windham, Connecticut. The company’s name was changed to Tubbs & Co in 1902, and then to Tubbs Mfg Co in 1905 when Charles Tubbs sold his interests to four employees who moved the company to Luddington, Michigan. Tubbs Mfg Co was in business until 1909 when it was acquired by The Hamilton Mfg Co.” [Shields]
