The Adams Family

Stop in the Ames Historical Society to see our latest exhibit, “World War II: Ames Doing Its Part.” It tells what locals did to aid in the war effort. This photo shows the three Adams brothers with their mother (left to right): Chev Adams, Lynn (Mrs. M. Jay) Adams, Frank Adams, and Clint Adams. Their company, Collegiate Manufacturing, won the Army/Navy “E” Award for excellence for making raincoats and ponchos for the troops.
