The Legion of Honor was a group of top-ranked sales representatives and field managers of the Burroughs Corporation. They had an annual convention at different hotels/country clubs around the country; it was a way for the company to say thank-you to its best salesmen. To get into the Legion of Honor, a salesman needed to make a quota, but also show the basic credentials of product knowledge, excellent sales campaigns, perseverance and zeal.
