More “Live Better Electrically” history

Thanks to Rich for this bit of information that he got from NEMA:

The Medallion Home Program was created as an adjunct to the
famous GE-sponsored "Live Better Electrically" campaign. In 1960, NEMA took over the administration of the Medallion Home Program to continue the work of promoting safe wiring and electrical installations in new-construction homes. This, like many other NEMA promotions, served the interests of both manufacturers and consumers by encouraging the use of high-quality electrical products, certified by NEMA, to satisfy insurance underwriters and bolster consumer confidence.

It looks like my medallion dates from the GE-sponsored inception of the program in 1957, while Rich’s medallion is from 1960 or later.
