Brent, I’m really glad to hear you guys are getting your notes together; a good history on Rider would be a big resource for collectors & researchers. I know most of us are familiar with his engines but not really knowledgeable into the details of their history.

Sorry I don’t have any notes to add that you probably don’t already have but good luck on the project & keep us updated on your progress & when something is available,

-Nick

Thanks Nick,
I'm working on short histories of DeLamater, Rider Engine Co., and the Rider-Ericsson Engine Co. to be published in Bores & Strokes for the June 2017 Coolspring show. Still trying to finish transcription of 300 pages of Alexander Rider's handwritten technical journals.

There is a Rider engine on display at the museum in Clinton, NJ.

I don't remember the name of the museum but it is in the old red mill along the river. Anyone in the area should be able to give you contact info, the town is not very big.

I've phoned the Red Mill museum there a couple times but so far no one has picked up. Also left messages. Does anyone live near there who could go visit? Thanks.
