A good study of Packard's patents is quite overdue, it's kind of a neglected treasure trove of information. Thanks for bringing it forward.

The list I've compiled of PMCC patents (excluding Studebaker Packard Corp.) numbers about 1732 patents, including a couple of ones by J. W. Packard and Hatcher that predate the formation of PMCC. I've been working on an article for some time, hopefully to be published in TPC. Analyzing them is fascinating, tells a lot about the individual inventors and the rise and slow decline of the corporation.

Dave,

Have you looked through theses:

Fred Mauck did a lot of research on Packard Patents and they were all organized in binders when I was given his collection.

Hi Kev, and thanks for the interest. Yes, I've been thru the Mauck material just to make sure there was nothing there I wasn't already aware of.

Packard, the captain, and the wavy-crank opposed-piston engine.

https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2019/08/ ... nk-opposed-piston-engine/

There must be an unwritten rule somewhere that every engineer – even the most button-down, nose-to-the-grindstone straight-shooter – is allowed at least one flight of fancy. Prolific Packard inventor Captain Lionel M. Woolson seemed to have spent his idle hours dreaming of an internal-combustion engine that nobody else seems to have considered.

Woolson, though little known to Packard automobile enthusiasts, holds high esteem among Packard aviation enthusiasts. He is, after all, the man who designed Packard’s successful diesel aviation engines that won the company the prestigious Collier Trophy in 1931 and who was personally recognized by President Herbert Hoover for the achievement.

A native of Los Angeles who spent much of his youth in England and who studied engineering at St. Paul’s School in London, Woolson began applying for patents in the Teens as a mechanical engineer with Hoboken-based Bijur Motor Appliance Co. then, once the United States entered World War I, joined the Army Air Service. Though he trained as a pilot, the Army Air Service assigned him to aircraft engine testing and stationed him at McCook Field in Dayton under Jesse Vincent, where Woolson rose to the rank of captain.
