The Draper-Maynard Company of Plymouth and Ashland, New Hampshire, operated under various names and in three different locations from 1840 to 1937. Originally a glove manufacturing company, with production primarily in local homes, the factory began making baseball gloves in the 1880 s. By the 1920s, Draper-Maynard was one of the largest sporting goods manufacturers in the country. While the company instituted and advertised increasingly rigorous testing and inspection procedures in its manufacturing processes, home baseball production was still used into the 1930s. This article discusses those various manufacturing processes.
