I'm a TCI member and have been interested in electro-mechanical switching and rotary phones since New York Telephone converted the manual exchange in my village to a crossbar switch in 1949.

A few years later my parents and I were visiting friends of theirs in Gomer, Ohio, where they had a Kellogg 1000 with a magneto. It had never occured to me that anyone beside Western Electric made telephones.

When I entered seventh grade I discovered that my high school had an AE PAX with an AE Type 50 in each classroom and Type 40s in the offices. Close to 90 lines throughout the school.

Does anyone have a source for replacement rubber base gaskets for AE type 40s or any other make and model of phone with deteriorated rubber base gaskets?

I think that I may have a WESTERN ELECTRIC TYPE 294 FIDDLEBACK telephone. Does anyone know where can I find a picture of one?

Admin reply: There is currently a photo of this compact fiddleback as the featured phone on http://www.antiquetelephonehistory.com/ ;)

I used to live in Great Bend Kansas and was an early member of the Telephone Artifacts Association. I was a member in good standing no. 16 in 1978. (Not sure when I joined)I have several old phones in my home and I collect the old telphone line glass insulators.
I don't know when your Antique Telephone Collectors Association was started but am sure our old Telephone Artifacts Association must have been a part of the new association.

I am retiring from 40 + years in teh telcom industry. I have a large assortment of documentation, starting from 1939 editions of AT&T training manuals, thru instaqllation and repair manuals from teh 80's and 90's. Also a number of commercially published telephone history books. I also have a small amount of old equipment (phones, * * * ins, etc.) Is anyone in this organiztion interested in any of this stuff? Especially if they ar near to Portland? I could try putting it on eBay or some such, but it would take forever to post, and shipping would be a killer. I'd like to see this stuff go somewhere it was appreciated, even if I don't get top dollar.
