Bedaux Heritage

Who we worked for in 1929

When we acquired the famous bronze buste of Charles Bedaux in 2004, from Mrs. Lucille Roberts, daughter of the late Mr. Charles English, President of the Chas. E. Bedaux Co. of Pacific States, Inc., she donated us the Addresses Book of her father, dated 1929. In this book are 132 companies specified, for which various Bedaux companies worked in 1929.

When we met with Mr. George Ungar, 1998 in Toronto (George is the Canadian movie director who produced “The Champagne Safari”), he presented us with copies of a lot of interesting material he came across during his 16 years of research for the movie project.

One particular interesting item was a publication titled “International Bedaux Company, Incorporated”, undated, bust me be approx. 1929. This publication gives addresses and short stories about all Bedaux companies in existence at that time.
