I have no idea if Calumet Baking Powder is related to Calumet Photographic, but the word was blazing out to me in this garage full of junk. I think I’m just hyper-attuned to camera stuff. Yeah, it’s dorky. But you can’t help it either.

I thought this was interesting:

cal·u·met [kal-yuh-met, kal-yuh-met] – noun
a long-stemmed, ornamented tobacco pipe used by North American Indians on ceremonial occasions, esp. in token of peace.
Also called peace pipe.

[Origin: 1710 – 20; < F, orig. dial. (Norman, Picard): pipe stem, a by-form of F chalumeau chalumeau, with suffix altered to -et -et] Unabridged (v 1.1)
