The personal organiser originates from Philadelphia (USA), 1910 when a Canadian engineer, J C Parker, invented a loose-leaf system (originally named LEFAX) to hold engineering data in a small portable binder, replacing over-sized technical handbooks. 11 years on, Norman & Hill Ltd is set up by William Rounce and partner Posseen Hill to export Lefax organisers to England after British Army Officer, Colonel Disney introduced the idea to Rounce the previous year (1920). Temporary typist Grace Scurr suggests the organisers should be called 'Filofax' - derived from the term 'file-of-facts'. On the 27th November, 1930, Filofax is registered as a trademark and begins to revolutionise how people record and use information, especially within the military often referred to as vademecums; Latin for 'always with me'. With the highest quality and consideration invested into each filofax (and every other product), you can be confident that your indispensable organiser is the ultimate, attentive companion.
