HAHL. RECORD, HOLDER. APPLICATION FILED MAR. 13 916.

Patented May'l, 1919.

EDGAR J. HAHL, or NEW Yonx, n. Y.

BEGOBDHOLDER.

specication of Leners Patent.

'Patented Mayra, 1919, i

application ned Marcil is, 191e. smal no. 83,731.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that l, EDGAR zen of the United States, residing at New York, county and State of New York, have invented' certain new and useful llmprove ments in Reoorddl-lolders, of which the 'lollowing is a specification.

rlhis invention relates to holders for i phonographicsound records of the disk type and has for its general object to 'facilitate the procedure of locating and removing desired record arranged in the holder; to prevent the surfaces of the records from beg coming scratched on 4being' removed from or on being inserted into the holder, and to facilitate the operation of locating that compartment in the holder into which it is desired to arrange a given record. And

to these ends the invention resides in a holder which-supports a plurality of records arranged in echelon and: where an 'index character opposite the exposed portion of each disk refers to a corresponding character in a table giving the names of the selections on the various disks and further where portions of the holder Aintervene the overlapping portions of the disks.

Other objects will ap ear and be better understood from that em odirnent of my invention of which the following is a specifi.- cation, reference being had to thev 'accompanying drawings `forming part hereof, and

in which: f

Figure l, is a front elevation of one em-f bodiment of the invention.

lFi 2, is a vertical longitudinal section on the line 2 2 of Fig. l. f

The record holder of this invention includes a body portion a which 'by preterence is formed of a eXible material, as tor instance, paper board. 'lihe length and width ot the body will respectively be determined by the record holding-capacity of the holder and by the diameters of the records. 'lhe sound records 5, are arranged as shown in echelon so that segments ot the successive records are exposed. The-exposed portions or' each record renders the opera Ition ol removing the same from the holder comparatively easy in that a generous portion of the record is lprovided for engagement bythe nn ers ing the body a to permit the records to be arranged and to support these` as just described, a series ot pockets are formed in the J. Herne, a citi-y any of the user. ln adaptbeen removed from a said body the width of each or which is a triie'less than the diameter of the record vto be arranged therein. The pockets or.

compartments may be incorporated with the body c in any suitable mannerjand may be of any suitable construction. ln the Vpresent instance and for purposes of illustration, ll havev shown the said pockets or compartments as being formed by a series of arc shaped recesses 6, the ends of which terminate in. circular' openings 7 7, which by their presence prevent the material at the ends of the recesses from tearing when the side walls of'the said ends are caused to spread apart for a distance corresponding to the thickness of the disks in the act of inserting these into the pockets or tompartments. 'llhe portions 8&8, between the pockets or recesses 6, correspond in area approximately to the areas of the exposed portions or' the ldisks 5, so that with any two adjacent pockets or compartments the periphery ont the exposed portions of the disk in the lower of these will substantially aline with the lower edge. of the@ recessimmedll diately above and as a consequence of this the portion 8, will intervene to prevent the surfaces or the. disks from wiping one against the other in the act of inserting sponding to the index characters 9, so that when the name of a desired-selection has heen located in the table the reference char ..acter opposite such name will indicate the compartment or pocket in which the reuired disk is located. llt will be observed t at with this arrangement ready access may be had to the required disk and the same removed without disturbing or handlin any other disk in the holder. After a dis has ocket the position of the same will be' rea ily indicated by the l absence of the disk so that when it 1s desired to return the disk to the holder the I `pocket for such disk may and the disk returned to inthe holder.

In order tov impart stability to the body a it is preferred to attach the same to a panel l1, of any suitable material, as for instance ber board or relatively thick paper board. As shown the point of attachment between the body a and panel 11, is at the upper end portion of the said body a and in the present instancev is shown as being eected by staples 12. By having the body a connected at one end only, will permit the said body to move outwardly and compensate for the space occupied by the overlapping portions of the disks when these are arranged as shown. l

The contents table isherein shown as being arranged on a card 13, which is detachably connected to the body a in any suitable manner as for instance by two or more oppositely disposed tongues 14, which extenl around opposite edge portions of the car From the foregoing it is obvious that the device is susceptible of many modifications its former position and I desire it to be understood that I may avail myself of any one or more of these within the scope of the claims.

What is claimed as new is:

l1. As a new article of manufacture, a phonograph disk record holder embodying a supporting member, an elongated sheet of be readily located, i

suitable material secured at its upper end to the base member spaced, arcuate slits in said sheet arranged in parallel relation lengthwise of the sheet, the chords of the arcuate slits being less than the diameter of the disks to be positioned therein, whereby when disks are inserted in the slits they assume an inclined position with their lower edges resting against the supporting member and with their exposed portions spaced apart so that the disks may be readily withdrawn from, or inserted in, said slits.

2. As`\a new article of manufacture, a phonograph disk record holder embodying a supporting member, an elongated sheet of suitable material secured at its upper end to the base member and a plurality of spaced, arcuate slits, the ends of which are enlarged into a substantially circular form, in said sheet arranged in parallel relation lengthwise of the sheet, the chords of the arcuate slits being less than the diameter of the disks to be positioned therein, whereby when disks are inserted in the slits they assume an inclined position with their lower edges resting against the supporting member and with their exposed portions spaced apart so that the disks may be readily withdrawn from, or inserted in, said slits.

In testimony whereofI I have signed my name to this specification.
