Discovered: Old stock certificate from "Douglas Corporation"?
Dated SEP 4th, 1957 is a certificate for 200 shares for DOUGLAS CORPORATION.
I can't find this company anywhere on the net.All I came across was for a "McDonnell Douglas Corporation".
Are these the same companies?

Originally, McDonnell Douglas was Douglas Aircraft Company, so unless that's what it actually says on the certificate, I'd tend to doubt it. There is a Douglas Corporation, but I think they weren't around back in '57, so not sure about that one, either.
What you can do is look for companies like this one: www.oldcompany.com, where they will (usually for a fee) find out the history of stock certificates for you.
Hope this helps!
