Found a few more pics...

After Tose purchased Fowler and Willaim's they renamed the company Tose Fowler. Here is a pic of a Tose Fowler R Model Mack that I found I FB...


This came across eBay a moth ago or so. This was the desk marker on Hilton 'Duke' Fowlers office. A fellow F&W friend of mine was able to buy it...


And this is a sign from one of their trailers that a friend of mine in a junkyard rescued.


If you have any other pics please share them!!!

Names bring back memories; Hilton was Duke. Bill Fowler was ahead of his time with using pink for sure.

Remember that building and those trucks. My father worked there in Sales for years. My brothers and I worked there summers and when school was not in session; one summer working night shift in the Traffic Office.

Yellow to Pink was something else for sure; long before it's time and got everyone's attention.

If I'm not mistaken, Road Scholar's logo contains just a dash of f+w pink!
I AM mistaken. I saw one the other day and the whole tractor was pink.

Here is another pic that we were able to locate. This one was also taken off of Meylert Avenue in Scranton. It shows a number of N model Macks along with and F model Mack and Emeryville on the far right hand side. The F models were from Fowlers lease company called Serco and were used by Coates Board and Carton Company out of Stroudsburg. When the leases were done Fowlers put them in service for themselves. A friend of mine is trying to locate better pictures of the Emervilles they had...

He actually left there to start his own trucking company, Road Scholar Transport. My entire immediate family works there! :)

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I didn't want to reply until I found the material pictured and I have! I remember my mother referring to someone as "Duke". Loved horses, maybe had a horse farm? Your mother might remember a woman named Marie M. that worked in the Scranton office. I know my mother would always send her Christmas cards and say she was from the Fowler & Williams days. We only stopped receiving cards back about 8 years ago.I recall some other names like Bill Lumley and Jack Compatello. My Mom would have loved for your mother, a Fowler, to inherit her memorabilia. My email address is Katgirl263@aol.com. If you will send me your mailing address, I will forward the 3 pieces to you. :)

That would be AWESOME!!!!! Her maiden name is Debbie Fowler. Her uncle was Hilton Fowler. My grandfather, Bill, was actually the one who decided to paint them pink. My mother's family lived near the Scranton, PA terminal, so she said that she does not remember your mom. My father was the VP of sales & F&W. His name is Jim Barrett. He actually left there to start his own trucking company, Road Scholar Transport. My entire immediate family works there! :) I guess it's in our blood! I am very sorry about your mom. If you are able to find any of the old documents, that would really be fantastic. I am searching far and wide to find as much as I can! Thank you so much for getting back to me!
