Certificate Vignette

The well-known optical company was founded by two German immigrants, John J. Bausch (1830-1926) and Henry Lomb (1828-1908). Although their association dates back to 1850, they did not formally establish a partnership until 1866. Beginning with the manufacture of hard rubber eyeglass frames, they gradually expanded their lines of production to include reading glasses and pocket microscopes. In 1874, they produced their first compound microscope, and the name of the business was changed to Bausch & Lomb Optical Company. By 1900, Bausch & Lomb had become the leading American manufacturer of microscopes (30,000), and the third largest in the world after Ernst Leitz and Carl Zeiss.

J.J. Bausch died in 1926 and Henry Lomb died in 1908.
