This letterhead shows the growth in class size of the Adcox Auto and Gas Engine School in Portland from 1916 to 1920.

This letterhead shows the growth in class size of the Adcox Auto and Gas Engine School in Portland from 1916 to 1920. Much of that growth resulted from a new state law to help veterans. The school enrolled 311 students who received state financial aid for returning soldiers, sailors, and marines.
