On the Road

In September of 1923, Arthur E. Raymo went on a business trip to Michigan, Ontario and New York. He visited other manufacturing plants, presumably to study their procedures and bring back ideas to his own alloy plant in Chattanooga. He rode from city to city by train and, when he had time, he sent home letters to his wife Margaret and family.

Here is one such letter Arthur wrote from Niagara Falls, New York.


  1. Thank you. I loved that note. peg

  2. A good chunk of my professional life was spent reading 19th C. letters (U.S. history) so I know what a gift it is that your kin wrote in such a legible script as the note above.
