Trade Name: "Daycroft" "Dayroyal"

Founded: 1889

Production: 1922 - 1929
History:

Rider´s and the Radios Collectors Guide listings allocate Day-Fan to General Motors. But Day-Fan models were not made under GM! The Radio Collectors Guide (Grinder/Fathauer) and Rider´s are obviously incorrect! See Slusser/Bunis.


Please allocate all Models pre 1929 at Day-Fan.
All other post 1929 Models at General Motors/ United Motors/ D

1889 wurde die Dayton Fan & Motor Company gegründet. Produziert wurden Ventilatoren. 1922 begann die Herstellung von Radio-Bauteilen und ab 1924 von kompletten Radiogeräten. 1929 wurde die Firma von General Motors aufgekauft. Rider´s Perpetual und (wohl daraus später folgend) Radio Collectors Guide führen die Firma fälschlich unter General Motors. Es gibt aber nach 1929 keine Dayfan Modelle mehr. Es wurde unter der GM-Marke Delco produziert (gleiche Adresse!), und diese läuft unter United Motor Service (Delco).
