The John William Osterweil collection of Tampa Cigar Box Labels
The Osterweil collection was amassed by John Osterweil, beginning in 1979, and his search for cigar box lithographs, pertinent to Tampa, took him across the country. Osterweil's donation to USF was made with the hope that it would be a useful resource to those interested in the Tampa cigar industry.
