20Title:  Robert Fulton drawings (reproductions), 1935-1960   
 Creator:  Fulton, Robert, 1765-1815 | American Society of Mechanical Engineers 
 Notes:  Collection includes one journal article: "Robert Fulton's Original Drawings" by Frederick D Herbert, in the Transactions of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, read to the society November 15-16, 1934. Also one set of nine photographs dated 1960. The journal article includes photograhic reproductions of 16 original drawings that were duplicates of the set that Robert Fulton attached to his patents for the steamboat (1809 and 1810). The duplicates were given by Fulton to Joseph C. Dyer in 1811, loaned to Boulton and Watt, returned to Dyer, and were subsequently discovered in the offices of The Engineer magazine in 1935, when they were reproduced in the article by Herbert . The set of photographs were made and given to the Engineering Societies Library by Consulting Engineer magazine in 1960. They are reproductions of Drawings numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10,11, and 13 for Robert Fulton's steamboat patent of 1809. All of the original drawings (tinted, 30 x 20 inches) that were reproduced in the article, plus drawings numbered 7, 10, 13 (1809) and 4 (1810) were given to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in 1935 when they were discovered in the offices of The Engineer. They were kept in the Engineering Societies Library in New York until 1977, when ASME released them to various institutions for display. The institutions receiving the drawings were not recorded. Reference note: see book by H. W. Dickinson entitled Robert Fulton: engineer and artist; his life and works. (London: Lane, 1913.) All of Fulton's patent drawings are reproduced in this book (octavo). Dickinson authenticated the duplicate drawings upon discovery at The Engineer in 1934.
