História administrativa

Founded in 1880 by William H. Davidow in New York City, W. H. Davidow Sons Co., Inc., and later Davidow, Inc. was one of a small group of leading American ready-to-wear manufacturers producing expensive women's clothing that sold nationwide in the better department stores and specialty shops during the first three quarters of the 20th century. The firm was known for its three-piece ensemble (coat and suit of matching or harmonizing fabrics), high quality designer reproductions, and their Daventree Sportswear line. The factory moved from 67 Bleecker Street to lower 5th Avenue and finally to 550 7th Avenue in the mid 1920's. William's sons Melville and Archibald and grandson Steven continued the business into the 1970's. Following Steven's death in 1972, the company was legally dissolved in 1976.
