Weston Electrical Instrument Company

Founded in 1888 by Edward Weston. Manufactured electric test equipment and meters. More information and archival materials on this company are available from the Weston Museum at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.


The MIT Museum frequently receives offers of donations of Weston Electrical instruments. Since the Museum already has a large collection, only items with an explicit MIT connection are taken under consideration for new accessions. Other institutions that collect these instruments include the Weston museum in the libraries of the New Jersey Institute of Technology and the Westinghouse collections at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh.
