1889 - 1940 Smith-Premier Typewriter Co.Syracuse, New York US.
The Smith-Premier Typewriter Company is named for brothers Lyman, Hurlburt, Monroe and Wilbert Smith. Prior to entering the typewriter industry these men were gun manufacturers. Under their employ as gun makers was a man by the name of Alexander Timothy Brown. Mr. Brown was an inventive fellow whom the Smiths had enough faith in to give full creative license in the creation of a new typewriter. That typewriter being the Smith-Premier No.1, patented in 1889.

In 1921 the Remington Typewriter Company fully absorbed the Smith-Premier brand. Almost immediately, all newly produced Smith-Premier standard and portable typewriters were nothing more than rebranded versions of either Remington or Monarch typewriters (Remington also owned Monarch). Smith-Premier ceased to exist in any facet in 1940.
