Woodbury and Company, founded in 1879 by John C. Woodbury, WPI class of 1873. The company was one of Worcester's leading graphic arts companies for one hundred and twenty-three years. In the early years, Woodbury formed various partnerships, with the original company being Keyes and Woodbury, and later, Woodbury-Carlton Company. Woodbury and Company was well-known as a leader in industrial graphic logos. The company became particularly renowned for its "birds eye view" engravings of factories and commercial buildings that appeared in advertising and stationery throughout the country. The innovative use of a photogravure engraving process had much to do with the company's success. The company produced many collectible engravings such as first day covers and presidential portraits. Four generations of the Woodbury family owned and operated the company until its closure in 2001.
