  Park Sherman Marking.JPG - PARK SHERMAN MATCH CASE - Nickel plated brass match case, 2 5/8 in. long, marked on bottom EVERDRY PARK SHERMAN CO SPRINGFIELD ILL  (The Universal Lamp Company was organized in 1913 by Jacob S. Sherman to produce his Auto-Lite carbide lamps.  Sherman's first lamp patent was filed in 1914 and awarded as #1,167,942 on Jan. 11, 1916 that would identify the pronounced crown top and concave, urn-shaped design of all Auto-Lite lamp tops for the length of manufacture.   By 1918, Sherman had moved the company from Staunton, IL to Chicago.  The company continued to expand its product line and in 1933, it purchased the Shanklin Manufacturing Co. and its Springfield, IL plant.  An integration of the Auto-Lite and Guy's Dropper lamp design features soon followed.   Jacob S. Sherman was also the founder of the Park Sherman Company in Springfield, IL.  The company sold miner's supplies (miner's cap lamps, match cases as shown here, etc.) and later specialized in things like coin banks and smoking accessories (lighters, cigarette cases, etc).  The relationship between Universal Lamp Company and Park Sherman is not altogether clear, but Sherman founded both and operated both.  Universal continued to manufacture carbide lamps at the Springfield plant until 1960 when the carbide lamp products were discontinued.   Likewise, the Park Sherman Company operated out of Springfield until 1960 when it was sold to a New Jersey company.)
