The Legendary Collection of Thomas A. Russo will be going up to auction through Auction Team Breker of Koeln, Germany on Saturday, October 12, 2019. This extraordinarily important collection of rare collector’s items and exhibition pieces features office equipment dating to the 1840s.
Tom Russo’s passion for antique technology is grounded in his longstanding career as an industry innovator of office machinery and communication. An author and authority on the subject, Tom amassed a fine and representative museum of early office technology, from the written word to arithmetic and the dawn of telecommunications. He describes his exhibits and their inventors as national treasures.
Now retired from a career with Remington Rand, Delaware Office Equipment Company, Russo is now devoted to sharing his knowledge and energy to the establishment of the Museum of Business History and Technology in Wilmington, Delaware.
