History

 

The Brodhead - Garret Co. was founded in 1906 in Cleveland, OH but later relocated to Mansfield, OH where they continue today as a subsidiary of School Specialties, Inc.  They specialized in school supplies and so it comes as no surprise that they had a line of crayons.  It is more than likely that they had another source manufacture their crayons as they didn't do much of any of their own manufacturing.  I couldn't find any specific references to when they started their crayon line but based on the surviving box and tin, I'd estimate these to be from the 1930s.
