Marquis M. Converse. In 1908 Marquis M. Converse created the Converse Rubber Company. By 1917, a rubber-soled, canvas sneaker, dubbed a high-top because of its ankle-high cut, became the forerunner of the legendary Converse All-Star. Over 100 years later, the same firm, now named "Converse, Inc.", continues as a presence in the athletic shoe business. 11” x 7¼”stock certificates for 15 shares Converse Rubber Shoe Company, signed as president by Marquis M. Converse, 1926, Massachusetts. Some folds, very fine. Uncancelled.
