History

 

General Crayon Co. was another small crayon company that operated in Easton, PA.  For a long time I thought perhaps they were just another name that Crayola used but in reality, there were at least three crayon companies operating in Easton at one point.  They were a small company.

 

The company is mentioned in several periodicals and papers throughout the years 1937 to 1960 so it had been around for many years.  Still, to-date, we only have one known crayon item that has survived from this company.
