Bates Numbering History

I occasionally wondered in practice the origin of the term "Bates numbers."  (In case you don't know, Bates numbers are the sequential numbers at the bottom of documents produced in litigation.)  Well, hooray for Wikipedia, which notes that the origin is from a patent issued to Mr. Bates and links to a history of the successor entity.

Hey, it was interesting to me, anyway.
