Horace H. Raymond worked in Connecticut as an engineer for the tool and hardware manufacture then called Stanley Works. He designed the first model of an optic device triggering the opening of an automatic door. He patented his invention in 1934 and installed the first set of his "magic doors" in a Connecticut restaurant for the benefit of waiters carrying plates of food and drink. Massachusetts Institute of Technology is the site of another early set of his automatic doors, installed by the university in its main entrance in the 1930s or 40s. In the early 1940s he founded Raymond Engineering, a large metalworking firm.
