A salesman’s sample case is a focal point of the society’s emblem. It was this emblem along with the title “Supreme Counselor” that caught my eye on the gravestone for William B. Emerson (b. 1872, d. 1921).
BORN 1972 DIED 1921
At the time of his death, William Emerson was an editor employed by UCT. Did he perhaps edit their magazine, “The Sample Case”?
