Vant Woud

In the late 1890s, Victor Clemens Vant Woud of the Vant Woud Rubber Co. of New York, designed atomizer hardware to be used on perfume bottles and medicine bottles.

His obituary in the New York Times, March 26, 1905:
"Victor C. Vant Woud Stricken in Brooklyn Street Car. Victor C. Vant Woud, a rubber goods merchant, was taken suddenly ill on a Putnam Avenue (Brooklyn) trolley car yesterday and died in a few moments. His death is supposed to have been due to heart disease. Mr. Vant Woud was on his way to his home, which is at 617 Hancock Street, when he was stricken. He was dead when an ambulance surgeon arrived from the Brooklyn Hospital. Mr. Vant Woud, who was forty years old was President of the Vant Woud Rubber Company of 88 and 90 Reade Street, Manhattan. His widow and one daughter survive him."

Cambridge Glass Co. supplied bottles and metal caps for Vant Woud.
