A Brief History of the Paige-Detroit Motor Car Co.

Name Slogan

With the possible exception of Michael Keller's The Graham Legacy: Graham-Paige to 1932, to my knowledge there is no definitive history of Paige-Detroit, there is no memoir of any key executive, and there is no available reference that can be relied on absolutely by Paige and Jewett enthusiasts. In writing this essay, which traces the Paige nameplate from its origin in 1909 to its disappearance in 1932, I have come across discrepancies among various accounts (listed in the Bibliography) that I have not yet resolved. To correct my errors or to suggest changes, please email me.
