What is the Marmon Club?
Who we are...

Quite simply, the Marmon Club is an international group of people interested in Marmon automobiles.  It is people who appreciate the history of Howard Marmon and Marmon cars.  We share our enthusiasm by means of the Marmon News, a bi-monthly newsletter, and through the fellowship derived from the annual Marmon Musters (antique car meets).

When it began...

It all began in 1970 when Russ Stadt, of Grand Rapids organized the Marmon Owners Club and sent out a newsletter.  This Club grew to 186 members in 1972, when business pressures forced his retirement, leaving the Club in a state of inactivity for five years.  In 1977 Leona Belote in Dunedin, Florida, decided that someone should get things going again and picked up the ball with a newsletter and organized a meet at Thomasville, Georgia.  There were only four Marmons at this meet, but it was a beginning.  Leona kept things going for the next four years with the help of Bruce R. Williams, who hosted a breakfast each year for Marmon people at the fall AACA Hershey meet.  From this came the start of a formal club, with a newsletter and annual musters beginning in Indianapolis in 1982.  Bruce R. has served the Club continuously since then.

 

Duke Marston was president at this time and his service in that capacity and later as secretary was representative of the devotion many members had for the Club.  We have formed like-long friendships in the Marmon Club, and yet new attendees at the musters find a very warm welcome.  The Club is unique in that, with probably less than six hundred Marmons left in the world, we have a relatively small club with unusually close relationships. 

 

Ownership of a Marmon or Roosevelt is not a requirement for membership.

 

Our club today has over 289 members representing more than 455 Marmons and Roosevelts.
