The MILW reporting marks were not recognized in the August 1931 ORER, but were recognized in the January 1938 ORER.

I asked (in response to John Greedy's date of the MILW logo change):
Was this also the date of the change of reporting marks to MILW?
Richard Hendrickson replied:
Obviously not, since photos show the MILW reporting marks in use as
early as 1936.
Glad to confirm this, as I did think it must have been
earlier. Does someone have that date?
