History of the Medallic Art Company
Clyde Trees found larger quarters for Medallic Art and purchased the company’s first press equipment.
He was instrumental in getting the company to advertise its products, an expense that the thrifty Weils believed was frivolous.
Arguments ensued over how to run the company, and by 1929, Clyde Trees had raised the funds necessary to buy out the Weils.
The agreement required that one of the Weil brothers would always be at work, effectively giving both brothers a six-month vacation every year.
