The Curle Slug Corrector was invented and patented by George L. Curle (bettern known for the Monomelt System). The literature I have access to for it, however, indicates that it was made not by the Monomelt Company (of Minneapolis) but by the Curle Manufacturing Company (of San Francisco). I do not know the relationship of these two companies, or the relationship of the Curle Manufacturing Company to George L. Curle. Curle listed his residence as Minneapolis in his patent filings.
