What is the history of Univair wooden propellers?

Modern props are not my field of interest, but the type certificates have passed through several different companies, Univair being one of them. I think they originally may have been held by Fahlin until other companies bought manufacturing rights, one of those being Univair and I think Nicholas-Beazley was involved somehow as well. I may be wrong but I think the most recent ownership was a Falcon Propellers company (which was completely different from Falcon Propellers manufactured for Curtiss Co. in the teens.

So you may see identical looking propellers with identical or similar drawing numbers produced by different manufacturers, Univair being just one of them.
