The photos in this cardboard folder depict the Electronic Heat Sealing Machine designed by Julius Sharat, engineered by Gerald Lippman, produced by the Thermo-Dielectric Company--and presumably used by Julius Sharat (1899-1981), a Jewish industrial designer who fled Germany in 1937, settled in New York City, shortened his name from Sharatzick, signed naturalization papers in 1944, and died in Miami, Florida..
