Duff C. Law

DUFF C. LAW was born September 20, 1886, in Camden, N. J., the eldest son of James D. and Agnes Duff Law. He received his education in the public schools of Camden, Lancaster (Pennsylvania) and Huntly (Aberdeenshire), finishing up with a short term at Mercersburg (Pennsylvania) Academy. Although fond of reading and study, his mental activities have found their greatest outlet in the field of invention. In every department of motion pictures, he has made improvements, and for years has been recognized as a qualified witness and court expert in all details of motography. He has to his credit many patents and secrets relating to super-sensitization, and the whole range of chemical, optical and mechanical principles in connection with black and white motion-pictures, also motion-pictures in the true and complete colours of Nature, and the synchronizing of motion-pictures with voice and music. He has also exercised his inventive faculties in other lines, his latest triumph being motion-pictures in stereoscopic style. He takes great pride in his combination laboratory, studio and faetory at Wissahickon, on the edge of beautiful Fairmount Park.

Mr. Duff C. Law, like his father, is a family man, having married, in 1911, a Scotch lass, Miss Janet Fyfe, from Aberdeen. They reside in their own home on Harmon Road, Roxboro, convenient to "Clovernook," and have been blessed with two sons and a daughter: Norman James, Kenneth Russell, and Lorna. Mr. Law is a young man of the highest ideals, of tireless energy, and if spared is destined to "rive his fatherís bonnet." Although an American by birth and citizenship, and loyal to the core, Mr. Duff C. Law carries with him the atmosphere of Scotland and a never-failing pride in her people and their achievements.
