I saw this article in The NRA's American Rifleman today:
Interesting to me as I have always considered the NRA as anti-class 3 per the statements made over the years. Here is the scoop off the 21A in the photos:
6040 21 A John Meunier Gun Corp. 272 W. Water St. Milwaukee, Wisconsin (1 of 7)
(1 Shipped 12/21/29) (Amnesty registered 1968)
* George A. Whitehead Portland, Oregon 1968 98%
Note: Now at the National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia 9/05
(See: Index Section, Whitehead, George A.)
WHITEHEAD, GEORGE A. Portland, Oregon
This Thompson originated with a small police department in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area.
In 1968, it found its way to Portland, Oregon and to Mr. Whitehead through a neighbor. It showed little or no use. Mr. Whitehead never fired this Thompson. Amnesty registered on Form- 4467 in November, 1968
Mr. Whitehead donated this Thompson to the NRA "National Firearms Museum" of Fairfax, Virginia in September of 2005. (See No. 6040)
(Note: George A. Whitehead passed away in Victoria, B.C., at 0300 on December 14, 2007. He was my dear friend)
These are notes from a CD that GH gave me some time back.
What a beautiful 21A.
