Colorado Funeral Directors and Embalmers Association, Inc. card of Oscar W. Meyer
Oscar W. Meyer's 1937-1938 membership card from the Colorado Funeral Directors and Embalmers Association, Inc and the National F.D.A. Card consists of black text printed on yellow card stock. Handwritten inscriptions, "O. W. Meyer" and date of membership expiration on front. Signed by the Secretary-Treasurer, Edward [illegible]. Colorado Funeral Directors Association Seal embossed in center. Card is slightly faded and there are accretions throughout.
This collection was reassembled based on History Colorado Curatorial Department research of legacy collections. It was decided to combine the ephemera/subject files about Oscar and Olivia Meyer, as well as the books, with the existing manuscript collection (originally only the autograph book.) We suspect these materials came to the collection together after Oscar's death in 1937.
