When the Cremation Association of America was founded in 1913, members received a unique badge with a medallion depicting a torch encircled by the Association’s name. Above was a banner with the city of the first convention, Detroit. Each year, the name of the hosting city would be attached to the badge of attendees who were present. Above is a photo of the badge of Dr. Hugo Erichsen, the founder of the Association, after the 1918 Convention in Rochester, New York.
