Frederick Post Slide Rule Cross Reference
  
                             
This chart lists all "Frederick Post" brand slide rules by model number and by when they were sold. 

Post never manufactured their own slide rules but they were vigorous sellers of other manufacturer's rules--some under the "Post" name and some under the original manufacturer's name.  This cross reference is concerned only with rules that were sold under the "Frederick Post" name.   Model (catalog) numbers are in horizontal rows and dates in vertical columns.  A grey cell indicates that I don't think Post was selling any rules with that model number that year.  Click on any white or green cell to learn all I know about that particular slide rule at that particular time.  I try to show the catalog entry, a scan of a specimen rule, the original manufacturer's name and model number and anything else I found interesting.

I use the words "model number" and "catalog number" interchangeably for Frederick Post brand items.  (For non-Frederick-Post brand items the catalog number assigned by the Post Company has no relation to the model number used by the original manufacturer.  Post catalogs rarely mention the original manufacturer's model number.)

 Credits: Ted Hume was coauthor of the original research back in the 20th century.  Peter Holland provided all the information about Dennert and Pape and urged me to publish the results.  Georg Schreiber provided all the information about Koch, Huxhold & Hannemann whose rules I had confused with Dennert & Pape.  I apologize to the many persons who provided material but receive no credit because I have forgotten their names.
