Scope & Content:
Folder 2 – Paul Reuter–Lorenzen's concept drawings for Duesenberg Radiator Ornament. While there is no year attributed to these drawings, it can be speculated that Reuter–Lorenzen was tasked with creating a hood ornament that could be manufactured by Duesenberg, Inc. to compete with other mascot designers. Gordon Buehrig's design of the "Duesenbird" eventually won out.
