HI all! I am looking to gather information on Alfred S. Campbell (1840-1912) photographer and entrepreneur. He worked in England before coming to this country in 1866 with Napoleon Sarony, to run Sarony & Co. He then started Alfred S. Campbell Art Company, Elizabeth NJ, also known as AS Campbell Art Co.; Campbell Art Company, Campbell Art Factory, Campbell Picture factory, etc. He also partnered with Francis Price in Price & Campbell, NY, then opened Campbell Studios NY with Rudolf Eickemeyer, later Morand. He later bought into Montauk Photographic Manufacturing Co. (Trenton, NJ) and Landon, Kent & Co. (WVA, MD). I believe Campbell Studio NY was also expanded to other cities.
His companies were some of the largest in the country.
I am looking for information on the man, his family, his businesses, his work as a photographer, his patents, anything put out by his companies, info on his employees ( in 1896 Campbell Art factory employed over 300 people!), etc.
If you have any information on this man/photographer, his businesses, a product, or a family member who worked for this company or is a relative of Alfred S. Campbell, please share it here.
Also if you have a photograph or card or calendar marked with his companies name please send me a picture of it so it may be posted here!
I may also be able to help identify the picture or answer your questions regarding Alfred S. Campbell Art Company and Campbell Studios.

And don't forget, any info please blog!!!
