Well those patents are the final bits to bring me to conclude that the Globe Fan Co. did not make a motor.  On page 467 there is a blurb about a display of Globe fans in their Broadway address being driven by Crocker-Wheeler motors.

It seems to be easier to make a "perfect fan" if you don't have to power it.
