Get This Extremely Rare And Vintage Fan While You Still Can!! Manufacture National Electric Co.
Yesterday I came across the sale of the Ozone circulator, Aerofan
trademark,and fan patent rights from the Russell Electric Company of Chicago in
37. The rights were purchased by the Auburn Automobile Company of Indiana.
This lead me to dig deeper into the Aerofan trademark and Russell Electric Co. What I found puts a new twist into the introduction of the 8" wooden blade Aerofan.
Racine Electric Co. of Racine, WI. in 16 put out the unique universal fan motors with the funky ringed guards. These can be seen in the 16 book link provided.
Facts are a company from Chicago had already placed a 8" wooden prop blade fan motor on the market using a Racine Motor prior to the Racine Electric Co. fan motors of 16.
NOW....important detail...Racine Electric Co. of Racine, WI. came into being 1912. What I think a lot of people don't know is Racine Electric Co. had a subsidiary in Chicago that opened shop in 15 that went by the name of Racine Universal Motor Company.
The Book, Popular Electricity, is shown in Google books dated as 14. The ad for the Aero fan is shown below with the manufacturer National Electric Co. NOTICE ......how AERO FAN is spelled...not Aerofan.....but ....AERO FAN

The National Electric Co. of Chicago that marketed the 8"
AERO FAN stated for 14 was incorporated in Nov.of 1912. I found a sound book
link to support this.
Here is what is interesting......check out what I found in a 21 EMF book link.....Russell Electric Co. of Chicago is making claim to the "Aerofan" trademark shown as early as..... April 1, 1915. The trademark name is listed for a....fan.

This page is from a 1916 McGraw Electrical directory. You will find the National Electric Co. of Chicago listed in this book under appliances. NOTICE...the mention of the trademark "HOLD-HEET". There is only mention of Racine Electric Co. in the fan motor section of this book. I found........ no reference in this 16 book of the RUSSELL ELECTRIC CO. of Chicago. Or for that matter......any reference of Russell Electric Co. of CHICAGO prior to 16 in Google books.

Now here is a kicker......I was lucky enough to nail the McGraw Electrical directory of 17. NOW....National Electric Co. "HOLD_HEET" is gone.......Russell Electric Co. is in sporting the...."HOLD-HEET" trademark.The addresses of both National Electric and Russell Electric if you compare them from both pages are identical. It appears the National Electric Co. changed its name to Russell Electric Co. in........late 16....or early 17.

Based on a Jan of 17 date on the book page that shows the Aerofan now under Russell Electric Co., I would think the change from National Electric to Russell Electric took place late 16.I bet National Electric and the later Russell Electric sourced the fan motors from the Chicago Racine Universal Motor Company. This would be the sister plant to the Racine, WI. Plant established in 12.
