Collection Item Summary:

The Westmoore Propeller Company was one of a large number of companies, such as manufacturers of furniture and pianos, that participated in the World War I era, but apparently did not continue producing propellers for very long afterwards.

From its Accession Memorandum, this artifact was probably designed for the Hall-Scott A-5 engine.
