My sister buys and sells items at a local vintage shop.  She came into possession of this working window fan, but I cannot find any identifiers on it.  We thought it might possibly be a Montgomery Ward fan, circa 1960s, but I can't find any that look exactly like it.  Do any of you know what we might have?  Thanks in advance for any help!

It looks like it might be a Berns Air King Window Fan.

Looks like a Montgomery Ward to me.

That's what the OP said but she wanted confirmation. It may have been made by Berns  for Monkey Wards.

It's not a Berns Air King made fan. I know that for a fact. They did not have a blade like that and the grille was different.

Edit: I have reason to believe this might be Signal-made.

Ok, well the way the grill was made and how it bowed out slightly like a triangle made me think Air King because their window fans had that style of grill.

It's almost nothing like an Air King. Many manufacturers made this style. Air Kings were more complex and usually had bright vibrant badges right in the center.
