I don't have a clue as to WAI, but I believe Menominee was the forrunner of FWD. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. The Menominee Indian Reservation is a few miles north of Clintonville WI. home of FWD

Menominee Motor Truck Co. - 1911-1928 - Utility Supply Co. - 1928-1937 - Clintonville Wisconsin


  

Named after an Indian tribe, the Menominee was a long-­lived but obscure make from Wisconsin. Originally made in 1500 and 20001b models, the range had extended up to 3 Y2 tons by 1917, and in 1923 ran from 1 to 6 tons plus two bus chassis, for 16/20 passengers and 25 passengers. Engines were always Wisconsin, and other components came from familiar suppliers such as Cotta and Detlaff for transmissions and Columbia, Shuler and Timken for axles. Despite small scale production Menominees were sold as far a field as Michigan and New York; a New York bus operator claimed in 1923 that his Menominee single­-decker was the largest unit of its type in the state. The smallest model was a 1-tonner known as the Hurry ton.

In 1928 Menominee's neighbor, the Four Wheel Drive Auto Company, acquired the firm as a subsidiary, renaming the operation the Utility Supply Company. While a few Menominees were built from then on, F.W.D.'s main purpose was to acquire a source for the supply of utility bodies, pole trailers and similar equipment needed for the production of its own vehicles. Nevertheless Menominees continued to be listed, the 1932 range running from 1 V2 to 8 tons in company with three bus chassis, the largest a 35-passenger unit. A new line was introduced in 1933, now with Waukesha engines and the usual other components. These remained in 'production' until 1937, but by then the plant was largely occupied on the production of bodies for FWD.

Wow, this is almost like having the night off. All I have to do is say that Bill White had this 1917 Menominee Model E-W Express 1st. Thanks to Dan Souday for the photo from the Hays Truck Museum, and IHCDR for all the details. I'm done !
