Thank you for saving this history while we can!

The site told me the pages were too big so the whole thing is 50% !!! <<
I can send the draft cards to your email I guess or do I have to paste pages some where full size then link here ? I dunno

The draft cards also have 1940 Census entry of occupation from each individual, thats just part of research.

Wow, Paris,..

I didn't realize they were draft cards, and my antique PC is having trouble with the .pdf you sent me.

May I share any of this with the AMCA forum, like teasing them with just the Bigsby gem?

(I had never even heard of the 'Scootabout'!)

Your research should be appreciated, Friday!

So I posted a clip of Bigsby's card (and a portrait) to the AMCA forum's sticky Vintage pic thread:

https://forum.antiquemotorcycle.org/bboard/forum/general-amca-forum/old-photos-pre-1930/23770-vintage-pics-of-the-day/page154#post299163

If it does not spark interest, I can still archive your efforts in their Crocker section for posterity, unless you prefer not.

It is certainly worthy.

yea Tom all good.

Also there is no record of P A Bigsby connection with US Navy, that is wrong info someone has latched onto.
There was more than one Paul Bigsby. The other Bigsby was in the navy, with no connection to guitars or Bikes.

the last 6 were teenagers. I have a list of mechanics that worked on the V-twins from 1936 but had left by 1940
