Revere Camera Company Chicago, Il 1920 – 1960

revere camera company logoThe Revere Camera Company based in Chicago, IL started out in 1920 by Samuel Briskin, who also started Wollensak Recorders and Optics. Revere oiginally was a car radiator manufacturer called Excel Radiator Co. In 1939 they changed the name to Revere (actually a merging of the then side business Revere and parent Excel) and started making movie cameras until 1960 when Revere was bought by 3M for (according to our references) 17 million dollars. The Revere name is taken from the Revere Copper Company, which provided financial backing for Excel Radiator during the depression. In the 1950s the company was the second largest manufacturer of small movie cameras in the USA.
