Dr. Corwin's Car Registration

Dr. Richard Corwin served as the chief surgeon for CF&I for 49 years. He registered his car, a Scripps-Booth model with the state of Colorado for identification purposes in 1919. Although we don't know the year of his car, research shows the Scripps Booth autos were produced between 1913-1923. Unfortunately, we do not have any photos of Dr. Corwin's actual car, but research reveals that Scripps Booth cars were one of the "top of the line autos" available at the time complete with push button door locks, electrical starter engines, headlights and electric horn (with a button in the steering hub, rather than outside the drivers window.) The car featured a three speed manual transmission. Scripps Booth cars were mainly purchased by wealthier customers, selling for $775 in 1914. Ford model T's that same year sold for $550.
