copyright Alonzo C Tenney, 1936
Patent Pending (?)
"Alonzo C Tenney" is found by Google as a doctor in 1933 Chicago and as a 6yo in Illinois in 1880.
Trademark: TESS http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=tess&state=4001:b2mfql.1.1 gives nothing - but "TESS database contains Federally registered trademarks or pending applications undergoing examination at the USPTO, but no information on state, foreign, or common law trademarks. The TESS database also does not include information on applications and registrations inactive prior to 1984 (i.e., abandoned applications or canceled or expired registrations)."
Patent Pending: I can find no sign of a patent or patent application by Tenney around 1936 on Googlepatent.
If anyone can do physical search or has better search skill pls let us know what you find. Another tack might be contacting "Tenney"s in Illinois and Chicago and asking for information.
