Occasionally in this column Iíll pull out an old photograph from the Albion Malleable Iron Company, once Albionís major employer. World War II was a time of transition for the Albion Malleable Iron Company as it retooled itself for War production. It also meant a change of management as some of its key executives entered the armed services to serve our country. This week from our Historical Notebook we present a rarely-seen photograph of Albion Malleable Foremen and Supervisors, circa early 1940s. Two of my uncles are in this.

Front row, left to right: Unidentified, Frank Jasienski (1917-1979), Harold Soules, Glen Kemler (1909-1970), William Pasick (1917-1946), Harold Winchell (1914-1992), George Kachmar (1918-1989).

2nd row: Edward Kotz (1888-1971), Max Linn (1893-1965), Emil F. Holtz (1886-1954), George Schumacher (1896-1981), Anthony Klimek, Ernest Kabel (1878-1959), George Overy (1883-1946), Ross Green (1881-1955), Fred Kopp (1884-1961).

3rd row: Lloyd Putnam (1905-1967), Alfred Bascom (1899-1987), Steve Pasick (1910-1992), Paul Knop (1901-1986), Albert Stone (1896-1980), Kenneth Sanders (1905-1990), Harry Kline, Harold Ford (1896-1957), Steve Buinowski (1909-1998).

Top row: Louis Dobson (1909-1995), Floyd Murray (1896-1968), Paul Sawchuk (1905-1991), Unidentified, Lawrence Morris (1895-1970). How many of our readers remember these men?
