Welcome to the forum William!
Schrade cutlery evolved many times from it's original founding in 1904, as I am sure you are aware. The company which eventually became th Imperial Schrade Corporation under Albert Baer was born of a series of aquisitions made by Albert over many years beginning in the 1920's with stocks of Camillus, then the ownership of Ulster which affiliated itself with an old enemy, Imperial. Then the purchase of Schrade Cutlery Co from the Schrade family after WWII. Eventually the purchase of all of the outstanding Camillus stocks from the Kastor family, then Imperial stocks from the Mirando and other families involved there. What do I think? I think there should be a historical founder's roll which includes all of the major founders of cutleries in the U.S. But I understand what the current Hall Of Fame is. It was/is a promo for a publisher. Most founders and innovators do not get the recognition they deserve including the Schrade brothers, the Kastors etc.
