Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild - Model Car Competition - Every Boy a Winner

Beginning in 1931, thousands of youngsters were completing miniature Fisher Body Napoleonic Coaches in the first year of competition of the Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild.  These models were submitted in a nationwide competition for university scholarships, trips to Detroit and other prizes.  The Fisher Body Corporation sponsored the competition to find design talent and skill among the coming generation.  The competition developed in later years into a competition of design for new automobile bodies.  This 12-page, Black & White, 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" booklet provides a written transcript with photographic illustrations of two of the speeches given at the 1949 Scholarship Award Banquet, where the winners were announced.  If you have an interest in the history and heritage of the Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild, you'll find this rare and unusual booklet to be of great interest.
