    The request that I speak on the historical aspects of electroforming was no doubt prompted by the fact that my father, Blasius Bart, was as much responsible as any single individual for developing the art of electroforming and raising it to practical levels. It was during the period of his active career—a span extending from the turn of the century to a scant 10 years ago—that the foundation was laid on which we today are building a new metal-working industry. Even before that, however, other ingenious men were experimenting with electrochemistry. Much of what is described in papers of this symposium had its beginnings in the ideas and experiments of a scattering of individuals in this country, England, and the Continent, who were intrigued by the possibilities of what they called “galvanoplasty.” To convey something of our debt to them, I have culled from our files some representative items which may give a better understanding of the base on which our present state of the art rests.
