In recognition and remembrance of company founder Thomas P. Anderson Sr., who passed away in 1990 from complications related to ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), ST Imaging President Tom Anderson Jr., along with sons Matt and Fitz, and grandson Wells, take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
In 1959 Thomas P. Anderson Sr. founded Microseal Corporation – a manufacturer of unitized 35mm microfilm aperture cards and 16mm microfilm jackets. Originally Anderson patented the “suspension type ” aperture card which held a single chip of 35mm microfilm between two transparent mylar protective sheets.
Anderson was one of the original founders of the National Microfilm Association (NMA), he was the only individual to hold the position of President of both the National Microfilm Association (NMA) and the International Microfilm Congress (IMC) at the same time. He was inducted into both the NMA and IMC Company of Fellows. In about 1985, NMA was renamed Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) and honored Anderson with the annual Thomas P. Anderson Sr. Microfilm Award to the individual who elected by his industry peers most contributed to the microfilm industry achievements.
Today, Microseal’s legacy is still recognized around the world as microfilm (analog) document service companies have transformed into digital document and film scanning service companies and Microseal is now doing business as (d.b.a.) Digital Check Corp / ST Imaging – the leading check scanner provider and the leading microfilm scanning company with reseller and distribution partners around the world.
Digital Check/ST Imaging has made a contribution to the fight against ALS; if you choose to make a personal donation, go to www.alsa.org/donate.
