The Vokar Corporation was a camera brand based in Dexter, Michigan from 1943 to the mid 1950s[1]. Prior to 1943, it had been the Verschoor Corporation, and before 1942 had been the electronics branch of the International Research Corporation, whose camera division became Argus.

Charles A Verschoor had envisoned the Argus A, introduced in 1936, and his company designed the camera that became the Argus C3 in 1939. After management problems, Verschoor ran the electronics division - which produced cameras of its own and was eventually renamed Vokar after Veschoor's death. The company went bankrupt in 1950.[2]
