The Mason Automobile Company was reorganised with Edward R. Mason returning as President. The company, which had been created by Fred Duesenberg, August Duesenberg, and attorney Edward R. Mason, produced an automobile called the Mason. In 1909, the company had been purchased by Frderick Louis Maytag, better known for his washing machine, and he renamed the car the Maytag. Mr. Maytag soon sold his interest in the company, and by 1912 the name had reverted back to Mason. The company went bankrupt in 1915 and was totally out of business by 1917. Approximately 1,500 cars were built.
