The history of this ring begins in Battle Creek, Michigan where William I. Fell created the Michigan Carton Company. Founded at the behest of Fell's friend W.K. Kellogg of Kellogg Cereals, the company specialized in cardboard boxes. It was around this time that the ring was purchased and given to Mr. Fell's wife, Frances G. Fell. It was later given to their granddaughter, Diana Gilmore, matriarch of American auto racing and the first woman allowed into the pits at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
