It's a tire size with a confusing number of different names. Schwinn called it "S4", but it existed in Britain and France before that. The British called it 26 x 1 1/2 for use on mid-sized rod brake roadsters usually, and the French called it 650b or "demi-balloon" and used it on cargo and heavier touring bikes. It's a great tire size but the melange of names makes it kind of confusing sometimes.
it is confusing.
26 x 1-1/2 = 650b = 27.5 = S-4 . They are all the same ISO - rim diameter .
Some of the early British bikes used this same size also - 650b

the Schwinn Welterweight (1953 ish) used this tire .
 
The non-Indian Head tires still say Made in USA! not China or Taiwan. Just without the Indian on them. No doubt newer tire. Bob U said the very same thing.
 
So they went PC back in the day before it was even a thing. Carlisle hasn’t made tires in the US since 81.
