New Acquisition: 1927 Delco Light Frigidaire Convention Badge

Today we received a donation of this 1927 Delco Light Frigidaire Convention badge with attached ribbon:

Delco Light Frigidiare Convention badge ribbon 1927 (accession 16-46)

Delco Light Frigidiare Convention badge ribbon 1927 (accession 16-46)

The donor stated that the badge belonged to her father-in-law, H. H. McLellan, who sold Delco Light plants in Nebraska. She said it was probably “a great thrill” for him to visit the convention, which was likely held in “faraway Dayton.”

This item constitutes accession number 16-46 and will soon be assigned a collection number as well.
