THE GOLDEN ROLL


| May/June 1970



FLOYD CLYMER

The Rev. Elmer Ritzman will, I know, share with me deepest regret at the passing of our mutual personal friend, Floyd Clymer at his home in California during late January.

Floyd Clymer was a truly remarkable man with unbounded energy, enthusiasm and warmth and he made great contributions in the recording and publication of the pictorial history of steam and gas engines, tractors, farm machinery, early automobiles and motorcycles, etc.

Floyd's books are on every newsstand and in every book store and library in the English speaking word and will be there long into the future for the information of younger generations. It is with fond memories and thanks for the heritage of information that he leaves that we record the passing of one of America's greatest 'Iron Men.'
