The People Who Made it Work: A Centennial History of the Cushman Motor Works
Based on a 2001 project for the Cushman Motor Works centennial celebration, this presentation tells the history of the Lincoln, Neb., company from its beginnings when the Cushman cousins perfected a modification of a two-cycle engine to its end in 2002 when the product line was moved out of the state. The speaker uses quotes from oral history interviews and a Power Point slide show.
