Thomas-Morse Aircraft Corp

Formed January 1917 at Ithaca, New York, from merger and recapitalisation of Thomas Brothers Aeroplane Company and Morse Chain Company. Principal products during and after First World War were S-4 single-seat advanced training biplane and its S-5 seaplane version; MB-3 single-seat fighter; R-2 and Fi-5 Pulitzer Trophy racers of 1921-1922 and their unsuccessful MB-9 and MB-10 pursuit/training derivatives. Last aircraft produced were O-19 two-seat observation biplane and O-19-derived XO-932 sesquiplane of 1932.
 
Development/production of these two continued after Thomas-Morse had been acquired in 1929 by Consolidated Aircraft Corporation.
 
In 1934 the Thomas-Morse Division was discontinued.
