"Be it known that I, Henry Ford, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Transmissions thrown out of operative relation by any shocks imparted to the chassis, and that they occupy as small a space as possible without sacrificing accessibility."
The patent act of 1790 established the rules for submitting a patent application. Each application had to be submitted with specifications, a patent drawing, and if possible a model of the invention. Eventually, models were no longer required.
The National Archives holds nearly three million patent case files from 1836-1956.
