Has all of this information about Lewis H. Latimer made you want to find out more about him? Although the house is temporarily closed, you can find lots of information elsewhere!

Typing Lewis H. Latimer into any search engine will bring up a number of sites that outline his basic biography. Reliable educational facilities such as the Lemelson Center of the Smithsonian, the Queens Library system, MIT, and of course our own Historic House Trust websites.

 

Books

 

 

Archives & Etc.

Aside from the house in Flushing, where we have stored portions of Latimer’s book and music collections, the Queens Library at Flushing contains over 40 boxes of the art, writings, and photos of the Latimer and Latimer-Norman families. Even from preliminary analysis of these boxes, it is clear that Lewis and the Latimer family were deeply invested in creative pursuits, and had a positive presence in their neighborhoods.

 In 1996 the Queens Library system held an exhibit about Lewis titled Blueprint for Change. The catalog of the exhibit is available under the same title.

 The Thomas Edison Papers project, begun at Rutgers University in 1978, also has a few resources on Latimer’s work with Thomas Edison. The collection is now primarily digital but if you’re in New Brunswick, NJ you can stop by the main university library to see the microfilm versions.

 While not a research resource, the Lewis Latimer Society of Chelsea, MA is proud to support the education of children in the sciences.
