Newton (Camp & Company)
Mr. Newton Camp, who had been a partner in the firm of “Estey & Camp”, established his firm of “Camp & Company” in New York City in 1879.  Camp & Company built a full line of square pianos, grand pianos, upright pianos, and organs.
Just before the turn-of-the-century the firm introduced a line of pianos and organs under the Newton brand name. The Newton brand was so successful that Camp & Company changed the name of their company to “The Newton Piano & Organ Company” during the first decade of the 20th Century.
During the ‘teens and early ‘twenties, some Camp & Company and Newton instruments were built under contractual basis by the Henry G. Johnson Piano Manufacturing Company of Bellevue, Iowa.  By the mid 1920s, the firm was acquired by Kohler & Campbell.  Kohler & Campbell continued to manufacture pianos under the “Newton” brand label until the World War II era.
