The Scranton Button Company was a U.S. corporation, founded in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in 1885. In the 1920s it branched out from making buttons into pressing shellac gramophone records. In July 1929 it merged with Regal Records, Cameo Records, Banner Records and the US branch of Pathé Records to form the American Record Corporation. The company was acquired in 1946 by Capitol Records. – Wikipedia
