Gunnison Random Finds

Smithsonian Institution Find
A recent web search for Gunnison catalogs pointed me to something in the Smithsonian Institute's American History Archives--a 1941 promotional brochure for the company that includes plans and pictures of the different models, and a press announcement from 1944 extolling the virtues of Gunnison homes.  After a brief e-mail exchange, a very helpful librarian scanned them and sent them to me.  And who says the Federal Government isn't efficient?!?

eBay Find
I found this on eBay--a matchbook advertising Gunnison homes.  Ironically, Pottstown, PA (address of the "authorized" Gunnison builder) is about 30 minutes from where I was born and raised.  Enjoy.
