1943 Robert Devore bailed out and sold all rights and patents to the Fresh'n-aire Co. to Cory Corporation of Chicago. I would bet Devore was feeling the pressure of the WW11 war material needs and jumped ship.

So I had a couple of Fresh'nd Aire Hassock Fans that said Fresh'nd Aire by Cory on them, which according to what you just said above would suggest that the hassock fans would of dated to after 1943 and before the 1970s am I right in assuming this Russ? 

Also in case you are wondering what the hassock fans looked like they looked like the one pictured below.
