North Star Camera's

Spartus Camera Company


Spartus Corp. began as Utility Mfg. Company of New York around the mid 1930s. It was during the 1940s that Spartus bought out Utility, so there are cameras to be found under the Utility name as well. In 1951, Spartus was purchased by an employee, Harold Rubin, who renamed the company Herold Mfg. Co. Jack Galter, former President of Spartus, started a new company called Galter Products about the same time. Both companies ended sometime in the 1960s.
