James Henry Rand, SR. was a descendant of John Rand, founder of Charlestown, Massachusetts. The Rand families lived in Massachusetts and later New York state (around Tonawanda, Niagara County). James Sr. was born May 29, 1859 in NY.

James Sr. first started as a railroad telegraph operator for three years then a bank cashier. As a banker he developed the first commercial system of dividers, file tabs and index cards. James Sr. founded the Rand Ledger Company to manufacture the index system. These greatly speeded up the banking efficiency.

Between 1908 to 1915 James Sr. had his son, James Jr.at the Rand Ledger Co. James Jr. created a new company dealing with filing systems and office supplies, mostly used by medical offices, American Kardex in 1915. His ideas centered on making business simpler. It became a huge company by 1920. In 1925, James Jr. purchased the Rand Ledger Corp. with his father serving as chairman of the company.

James Sr. lived until Sept. 15,1944.
