MAN WITH AN IDEA


| March/April 1953



Here is a man who has an idea. We know nothing about it except that it is.

We might talk it over. Ed.

I enjoy the magazine very much, tout I would like more in it about the old Gas Tractors. After all, it took Iron Men to operate the old Gas Engines.

I have been thinking for some time about a method whereby the collections of old machinery catalogs and literature could be more widely distributed and better preserved. I think the answer is Microfilming. I investigated a little a few years ago and I think that your magazine could work out something with it. The cost would be about $6.00 per thousand pictures. All of us who are interested in this could have our collection microfilmed and exchange with each other. Prints would probably not cost very much, and the storage problem would be solved.

Think it over and let me know.

Yours truly,
