Morgan Lithograph (1864 - Present) was founded in 1864 by William J. Morgan (1838 - 1904) and George W. Morgan (1843 - 1905) as W. J. Morgan and Comapny. William was born in Wales and Gorge was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania after the family emigrated. This issued trade cards, broadsheets, maps, pamphlets, postcards, and advertising posters. By the late 1880s, the firm focused almost entirely on colorful large-scale chromolithographs for the circus industry, with Ringling Brothers being their primary client. The name of the firm was simplified to Morgan Lithograph in 18987. They won gold medals at both the 1889 Paris Exposition and the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago for their high quality large-format lithographs. The firm still operates in Cleveland, Ohio. The firm famously produced the political posters for William McKinley's 1896 presidential campaign. In the early 20th century, they segued into film posters for the nascent motion picture company. The firm remains in operation in Cleveland after nearly 160 years.
