  • Curtiss & Associated Companies - 1929

    SKU: 21-CAT-162

     Lavish production honoring Clement M. Keys, Chairman/CEO/President of the 23 companies covered in these 64 pages.  Each company is covered on one or more pages including their products w/photos; company officers are listed along with financials. A shocker to see the range of this conglomerate at such an early date.  Very good; light cover soil.
