RECORD-FILE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented J an. 115, 19 12 Application filed January 5, 1917. Serial No. 140,746.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I. FRANK P. READ, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Chicago, Illinois. have invented a new and useful Record-File, of which the following is a specificationj Myinvention relates to apparatus for filing records such as phonograph disk records.

It has been customary to file such records on shelves and in envelops and albums. These methods are awkward and not sus ceptible to orderly and systematic arrangement. As the records are fragile they are subject to breakage when filed by these old methods.

My main object is to provide a simple and inexpensive construction for filing such records compactly and yet so that they can be readily found and so that there will be little danger of breakage.

According to my invention the records are filed on edge in pockets arran ed in a suitable box or drawer. These pocIrets are preferably provided with relatively soft pads in the bottom to protect the edges of the disks and to make the pockets durable. The upper portions of the pockets are expansible and the lower portions are preferably held distended so as to avoid crowdingef the disks toward each other. These'spa'cing or distending devices .are preferably so arranged as to support the edges of guide cards for locating and identifying the various records.

Figure 1, is a vertical transverse section of a filing device embodying the improvements of my invention.

Fig. 2, is alongitudinal section of the same showing one of the records partly Withdrawn.

Fig '3, is a view similar to Fig. 1 of a modified form of the invention.

Fig. 4, is a longitudinal sectional View of the same.

In the form shown in Figs. 1 and 2, each pocket is formed of canvas or some other suitable fabric and provided with cross bars 10-'10 at the upper edges of the front and back flaps thereof. Each end of each cross bar is provided with a hook 11 which fits over the guide 12 and extends into a groove 13 in the side 14 of the container. It will thus be seen that the pockets can he slid from front to rear of the container and can be opened out or collapsed at will.

The disks such as 15 are stood on edge in suitable means so as to limit the pockets and preferably rest upon pads 16 of felt or other suitable material. Preferably each disk is provided with a guide or index card 17 so that the disks can be readily located. Each disk will bear an index number corresponding to the number on the tab of the guide card and an index sheet may be provided where the names of the pieces on the disks are alphabetically arranged and where the numbers of the disks will appear.

I preferably provide members 18 at or near the lower ends of the pockets for holding the flaps apart so as to prevent the weight of the disks being concentrated at the center and consequently crowding the disks together. These spacers also afford supports for the guide cards which would have a tendency to curl up and be crowded together against the fabric of the pocket. These spacers may be held in position in any suitable manner and may be made removable if desired so as to permit collapsing or shut ting up the pockets into more compact form.

In the fornr in Figs. 3 and l the pockets are provided with rollers 20 resting on tracks 21. These rollers may conveniently be carried by the spacers 18. The side walls of the pocket are hinged along the upper edges of the spacers and are more or less rigid and selfsupporting. The upper edges may carry pins or rollers 23 adapted to rest on the ledges 24 of the container when the pockets are opened out as shownat the right of Fig. 4. The sides of each pocket may be connected by cords or chains 25 or other the opening movement. It will be noted, in this form of construction, that the main support of each pocket is at the bottom and that the upper edges are ordinarily prevented from opening outwardly by the contact between the rollers 23 and the ledges 24. In these figures the guide card is indicated at 26 and the number of the disk as 27, which is also the index number on the guide card.

Instead of the rollers 20, other anti-friction devices such as domes of silence may be employed supported by suitable grooves on tracks in the bottom of the container.

According to my invention it is only necessary to handle the particular record that is desired and when a record is removed the pocket remains open for it until it is returned.

As each pocket is selfsupporting in the container no follower is required and consequently the full capacity'of the container may be utilized. By this method of filing the records are kept in an orderly and systematic manner without danger of breakage and when covered in a drawer or cabinet are fully protected from dirt and dust. The construction is such that there is no danger of chipping or cracking the records as they are manipulated in the pockets. The records are readily accessible for selection and may be readily replaced when desired.

What I claim is 1. A record file'comprising a container, a plurality of pockets independently supported at their upper and lower parts in the container, each including front and back flaps with means for permanently spacing apart the lower edges of said flaps, said means constituting the pocket bottom.

2. A record file comprising a container, a plurality of pockets independently supported at their upper and lower parts in the container, each including front and back flaps with means for permanently spacing apart the lower edges of said flaps, said means constituting the pocket bottom, the pocket support including an anti-friction means to permit the pockets to be moved to and fro freely in said container.

3. A record file comprising a container, a plurality of pockets independently supported at their upper and lower parts in the container, each including front and back flaps with means for permanently spacing apart the lower edges of said flaps, said means constituting the pocket bottom and means for limiting the spreading apart of the upper parts of the front and rear flaps.

4. A record file comprising a container, a plurality of pockets independently supported at their u per and lower parts in the container, sai pockets being substantially fiat bottomed, the front and back flaps of said pockets being movable toward and from each other, anti-friction devices arranged between each pocket and the support for the latter, whereby said pockets may be moved bodily in said container and whereby the flaps of each pocket may be moved toward and from each other with freedom,

5. In a record file, a container, a pocket mounted on the bottom thereof to slide to and fro therein, said pocket includin movable front and back flaps with means or normally holding said flaps spaced apart at their lower edges, a slidin connection between the upper parts of said flaps and said container whereby the upper part of said pocket may be opened more or less at will.

6. Ina record file comprising a container, a plurality of pockets therein, each pocket having a yielding bottom and means for spacing the sides of each pocket apart near the bottom.

7. In a record file, a container, a pocket mounted on the bottom thereof to slide to and fro therein, said pocket including movable front and back flaps with means for normally holding said flaps spaced apart at their lower edges, a sliding connection between the upper parts of both of said flaps and said container, whereby the upper part of said pocket may be opened more or less at will, and means for limiting the opening movement of said front and back flaps of the pocket. v

8. A record file comprising a container, a plurality of pockets mounted in said container, means for supporting the bottoms of said pockets to permit the pockets to be moved back and forth in said container and means for preventing the spreading of the upper edges of each pocket.

9. A record file comprising a container, a plurality of pockets mounted in said container each pocket comprising a movable front and back flap, means for permanently spacing the lower edges of said flaps, means for supporting said pockets at their upper ends on said container said means being constructed to permit said pockets to he slid bodily in said container and to permit the upper edges of said flaps to be moved to and fro independently of any bodily sliding movement of the pockets themselves.
