Charles Grafton Page
   A number of pieces of apparatus manufactured by Daniel Davis were designed by Charles Grafton Page (1812-1868) or developed from his suggestions. Page graduated from Harvard College and later from the Harvard Medical School, and was, at various times in his career a physician, a patent examiner and a patent agent. He spent the years from 1836 to 1839 as an electrical scientist and inventor, publishing about forty papers on his work.

   Page was one of the inventors of the induction coil, and developed early versions of reciprocating and rotary electric motors.
