Microscope

Description
This is a compound monocular with coarse focus, inverted fine focus control, circular stage, sub-stage mirror, and tri-leg base. It is remarkably similar to the Continental Microscope No. 3 that could be had from E. H. and F. H. Tighe, in Detroit, Michigan, in 1899. It belonged to William F. Meggers (1888-1966), an American physicist from Wisconsin who spent his career at the National Bureau of Standards, specializing in spectroscopy.
