          You might have time to grow one before the International Meet.

              I have a hardbound book THE HISTORY OF THE STUDEBAKER CORPERATION by ERSKINE copyright 1924. Have not picked it up for quite awhile. Has a lot of old pictures from inside the plant.

                Isn't this the same one. Just turn the pages on bottom right.

                  That is nice that someone took the time a trouble to present that book. The one shown (above) and in the presentation is the short version that was issued in 1918. It measured 5 1/4 X 8 3/4" and had 97 pages. A larger version was issued in 1924 and it was 6 3/4 X 9 3/4" and had 230 pages. It came in 4 different bindings as shown below. A.R. Erskine is credited with authorship though I believe much of it was written by Dr. C.A. Lippincott who was the head of the Studebaker Cooperative Dept. I knew his son.

                    There is also a full leather covered version of the first 1918 print with gold edged pages.
