The patent information tells us a bit about the lures but not much about the man. He applied for the patents in March of 1931 and received them in consecutive numbers on 19 April 1932 as Patent #1855066 and #1855067. They cover both a single and double hook trolling spoon of interesting design. Certainly someone out there has seen this lure or owns one?
Thanks to Joe setting the record straight, and hopefully we can find more information about this fascinating character.
