Brockway

Brockway Camera Corporation USA is the trademark holder of the brockway exposure meters. Mr.Mitani of the Sekonic Electric Company received the rights to produce this meter for Japan. The typical sphere from this meter is the invention of  Don Norwood.
 
"In 1948, the Brockway family and the American Bolex company obtained the rights to produce the Norwood Director exposure meter. By Summer of 1948, Paillard of Switzerland established Paillard Products Inc as a direct factory branch in New York City. By the end of the year, this new company had become the sole distributor for Bolex and Hermes products in the United States. With the loss of the Bolex franchise, the Brockway family continued the manufacture of Norwood Exposure meters under the name "Director Products Corporation"; this appears to have later been changed to "Brockway Director Corporation".

After this point, details seem to be unclear. It appears that Robert Brockway, son of Ezra S. Brockway, established the Brockway Camera corporation in the mid 1950s. The company continued to manufacture and develop the Norwood Director until it sold the patents to the Sekonic corporation in 1957. " Source: Bolexcollector.com
