HUDSON MAXIM Black and white publicity photograph of Hudson Maxim looking past his shoulder. Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Wm A Temple-/Hudson Maxim/with/Compliments and Best Regards". B/w, 8x10. Hudson Maxim began his career in armaments and explosives in his brother Hiram's gun factory in New England. In 1888, he began developing new explosives and by 1890. Maxim invented a new smokeless powder. He helped his brother found a dynamite and powder factory in New Jersey that year: the following year, they parted company. In 1892, he began his own munitions factory in New Jersey, the heart of the United States' manufacturing at that time, where he developed a smokeless cannon powder. Maxim sold his company to E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Company in 1897: however, he remained as a consulting engineer. Later accomplishments include shock resistant torpedoes, delayed-action fuses and a propulsion substance fro torpedoes. These inventions greatly aided the Allied effort in World War I. Machine guns manufactured by his brother changed the weaponry of warfare for all time. Photo has silvered. Lightly rippled (mounting remnants on verso). Slightly creased. Overall, fine condition.
