The Birds to Call!

The man I most associated with this business logo has passed away. He had recently attained the age of 100 and been the guest of honor at a gathering with family and friends. He endeared himself to many during his life and will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known him.

The "Bird" was the creation of Walt's best buddy, Eddie Rand. No one else was ever involve with it's meaning or creation other than Walt's Boss and Uncle Bert.(Herbert Wyman Peirce) the Peirce Partner who Managed all thing mechanical & had to write Eddie's check. He smiled as he wrote it and commented that Peirces' for over 900 years had been considered odd birds. No point in changing now.
