Decades ago a very small boy on a Nebraska farm read and reread the Arabian Night's story of Aladdin in a room of darkness but for the flickering yellow light of an open flame 'coal oil lamp.' Several years later that boy, grown to manhood, found a lamp that erased the darkness with a soft white light and it was only natural that he named the lamp 'Aladdin.' An appropriate name, indeed, for this revolutionary boon to rural America seemed to be nothing short magical in the intensity of its light.

For those who lit the lamp, trimmed its wick and cleaned its chimney, or just enjoyed its friendly glow, the Aladdin lamp recalls many memories of golden childhood. It made learning possible for many boys and girls. Later, Aladdin brought this white light to every kind of habitat in every corner of the globe.
