Description Photocopy of an advertisement for Modern Maid ranges, features a reproduced image from 1927 and provides a history of the product, its company, and the Caldwell family that operated it for more than 60 years. Modern Maid ranges were first produced in 1904 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, by the Tennessee Stove Works. That company changed to Modern Maid, Inc. in 1966. This ad is likely from the mid-1970s based on the company information listed at the bottom. Modern Maid merged with the McGraw-Edison Company in 1972 and later sold to Raytheon in 1979.
