A large and interesting display of micanite was made by the Mica Insulator company, of New York, which was represented by C. W. Jefferson, the manager of the company and the originator of this material. The exhibit comprised micanite in all sizes and forms needed for the insulation of field spools, armatures and commutators as well as in plates and sheets. Some of the pieces of micanite exhibited were very large and had the appearance of sheets of metal. A conspicuous feature of this display was a sheet of micanite in an elevated position lettered with the name of the material. This micinite formed one side of a box which contained three incandescent lamps. The light from the lamps illuminated this translucent sign and produced a striking effect.
