The Early History of the Medallic Art Company, circa 1902-1920


Multi-Media Summary

This presentation will shine some light onto the clouded history of the Medallic Art Co. (MACO) between 1902 to 1920. These "early years" follow the firm as it grew from a side project for an employee at a ladies handbag company, tell how bitter legal struggles almost left the young company bankrupt, and show that the foresight of a young entrepreneur transformed the firm into one of the most important producers of 20th-century medallic art in the United States.
