1931 Calendar from Lord & Schmitkons, Inc.

Boy Scout Memories was the theme of the promotional calendar from Lord & Schmitkons, Inc. from 1931. Inside the booklet found at the top of the calendar are the twelve points of the Scout Law, instructions for making backpacks and rover packs, as well as blank pages for Scouts to keep a record of meetings, hikes, and other events. Lord & Schmitkons, Inc. was incorporated in February of 1929, with officers George C. Schmitkons, president; Bert H. Lord, vice-president; and K. B. Lord, secretary and treasurer. The company was the distributor for Studebaker and Pierce-Arrow Motor Cars, at 212 Hancock Street. According to Sandusky City Directories, Lord & Schmitkons was only in Sandusky about two years, from 1929-1931.
