Memo Book - Control Corporation, Minneapolis, Minnesota
for item Misc188
This item is a small Memo Book given as a complimentary gift by Control Corporation of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The first inside page states that Control Corporation was formerly General Controls Company. It shows the phone number as Granville 3874 and has a date of May, 1940, on the front cover.
From the few notes written in this book, it appears the owner used it to keep up with a baseball team’s expenses. On May 1st, a glove was purchased for $5.95 and a Resin Bag was purchased for 45¢. On May 2nd, prizes for a softball game are mentioned, as well as, the expenses for a softball game between Dallas and another team. The last note was written on May 6th.
It would really interesting to find out exactly what team these notes refer to back in 1940!
The book is in good condition – inside and out. The outer cover has some fractures on the surface and corners. The interior pages are in very good condition and, of course, have writing on them.
