  • The Archambeault's of South Bend, loyal Studebaker family

    The Archambeault’s of South Bend were a loyal Studebaker family. Louis A. labored there for an incredible 58 years, his son John won a war workers medal in 1943 for going “above and beyond” in making valuable suggestions to speed up production (he was awarded the “wings” and card as shown with his name misspelled!) and granddaughter Mary J. who was hired in 1943 and worked throughout the war (her wartime security i.d. card shown). I received these items from Mary back in the 1970s. All of the items are quite scarce.

    Hmmm, I wonder if the Archambeault’s I knew in the Original Orange County Chapter in Southern Calif. are related.
