In the January, 1986 issue of GEM, an article about K. E. Dokter's 1913 Ellis engine appeared. The response that Mr. Dokter has received from that article indicates a desire on the part of Ellis owners for a directory which would include owners' names and addresses, engine horsepower and serial numbers. This directory would include both upright and horizontal engines.
Owners of Ellis engines are urged to send information about their engines to: K. E. Dokter, Dok's Engine Shop, P.O. Box 292, Weeping Water, Nebraska 68463 (phone 402-267-5151). Be sure to give complete information-engine horsepower and serial number, your name and address. Mr. Dokter would also like suggestions for helpful information that the directory could include.
If there is sufficient interest, perhaps an Ellis engine club will be formed at a future date.
