Beginning of Our Canning Industry.
To Ezra Daggett belongs the hon-
or of introducing canning as an indus-
try in the United States (1815-1819).
He had learned the art in the “old
country,” and practiced it in New
York city, where he packed salmon,
lobsters and oysters.
As early at 1821, William Under-
wood, of Boston, put up preserves in
glass, but it was not until 1838 that he
began to substitute tin.
Comically crude were the early
cans. All were hand-made, and sixty
a day was considered a large output.
For the piece of tin required for each
can was first drawn with careful com-
pass then cut out by shears, while a
tremendous amount of solder was used
both for the seams and the cementing
of tops and bottoms.
Amusing features of the early in-
dustry were the experiments in can-
ning corn. Isaac Winslow, of Maine,
was a pioneer in that special line.
It was first put up in a cumbersome
way on the cob. This proving imprac-
ticable and wasteful, the kernels were
cut off by the use of a knife curved to
the cob. A machine worked by hand
followed. Finally, and not until 1886,
came the power-driven machine.
