Wally Droegemueller was Products Stylist for Oliver Corporation.  He moved to Oliver Outboard in Battle Creek, Michigan from Scott-Atwater in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Oliver Outboard FIXation hopes to expand on Mr. Droegemueller’s history at Oliver.  The following article from 1956 demonstrates his forward thinking.  While Oliver Outboard did not survive to bring his vision to fruition, we still can enjoy his work of art today.  Whether you find an Oliver Outboard hiding in your barn or find a good deal at a yard sale, they can be restored and used today.  Let the FUN begin.
