American, incorporated 1945

Institution: E&J Manufacturing Company
E & J Manufacturing Company is a California corporation, which was incorporated in 1945 which manufactured and sold resuscitators and other gas administering devices under the trade-mark 'E & J'. The initials 'E' and 'J' were derived from the initials of the developers of resuscitators, C.N. Erickson and Dr. Johnston. The initials, either alone or as 'E & J Manufacturing Company,' were used as a trade-mark by the sole proprietorship owned by Mr Erickson from 1929. In 1945 Mr. Erickson disposed of his business, including the trade-mark, to Don Baxter, Inc.
