    It looks derived from a 1920s to early 1930s Buescher design.  Elkhart was a budget line of Buescher

      I have read that Buescher bought Elkhart in 1928.  There were Elkhart models prior to that date, but they may have been Martin stencils.  Once Buescher bought them, they made Elkhart their student line.
