  1. I appreciate the effort anyway. It's an interesting bit of history (or would be) as it ties into some of the "pop culture" of that period.
  2. Fascinating! Maybe the idea is apocryphal? I see the surname. Any relation? The Wikipedia entry for the cars has a passage about it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewett_(automobile) "Embedded in the dashboard of every Jewett was an amulet, visible on the Passenger side as a dashplate. Harry's wife Mary was something of a spiritualist, and these amulets were purported to have mystical power that protected the occupants"
  3. Interesting. I hadn't heard of this. Found this image though of the Wasp's St. C medal.
  4. Sort of an odd request. I posted this in a thread down in Graham & Paige, but no response so I thought I'd try asking here in General. I am researching religion and spirituality in the early 20th century and wanted to include a reasonably clear photo of the infamous "Jewett Amulet" that was supposed to be embedded in the cars' dashboards. Jewett's wife, a follower of mysticism, believed they would protect the cars' owners from harm. At least that's the legend. I've found references to the amulets online but no pictures. Any help is appreciated!
