Cameron
The United Motor Co.
Pawtucket, RI
1901-1903

In 1901 James E. Brown of the Brown Textile Machine Company and Everett S. Cameron, engineer formed The United Motor Co. in Pawtucket, RI. The United Motor Co. produced an American Automobile called the Cameron.

The Cameron was produced in 7 different cities and under 8 different corporation names from 1901 to 1921. Financial trouble was the reason for each company name change and relocation.

The first Cameron was a small light gasoline runabout with a wheelbase of 72 inches, 40 inch tread and 28 inch wheels and tires. The body was suspended on semi-elliptic springs in the front and full elliptics in the rear.

The engine was located under the front hood of the car instead of under the seat. It had a sliding gear two speed transmission and shaft drive.
