Charles E. Bowers Family Collection
The Charles E. Bowers Company, formerly known as the Bowers Moving Company, was founded in the late 1840s in Baltimore, Maryland. The company remained in the Bowers family through successive generations until the most recent owner, Charles E. Bowers, Jr., ("Ed") was murdered in 1973. Edward Friedland purchased the business in 1974. The bulk of documents in the collection relate to the sale of the Charles E. Bowers Company and consist of letters, licensing documents, pamphlets, meeting minutes, photographs, and accounting records. Also included are genealogical records relating to the family.
