Knapp-Monarch (K-M) Appliances. Research Magazine Advertisements. The Best Resource on the Net of Vintage Ads! Andrew Knapp founded A.S. Knapp and Company in the early 1920s to sell the "Knapp Cap," a device used to train a kid's hair to hold a pompadour shape. Founded as a sales organization in Saint Louis, the company soon acquired a Kansas City luggage manufacturer and marketed an inexpensive line of suitcases through chain and department stores and mail order houses. In 1926, Earnest Johnson, president of the Monarch Company of Webster City, Iowa, approached Knapp in the hope of using Knapp's sales organization to sell Monarch home appliances. In January, 1929 Knapp and Johnson merged their companies to form The Knapp-Monarch Company. Johnson died barely two years after the 1929 merger, Andrew Knapp ran the company until his death in 1961. In 1969 Knapp-Monarch became a division of the Hoover Company and Andrew's son Robert S. Knapp supervised operations of the Knapp-Monarch division for Hoover.
