History/Personnel:

  • Walter Williams: "Williams moved to Chicago in 1920 and graduated from Chicago Business College in 1930. He took his first job in the glass industry when he went to work for Simpson-Clarke Glass Co. as a stenographer. ''At that time, the Depression was in full bloom and I knew that his company was going to go out of business,'' Williams said. ''Someone told me about another company, Tyler & Hippach Glass Co., that would hire me, and I took a job there as secretary to the treasurer.'' Later, he was appointed credit manager for Cadillac Glass in Chicago. In 1940, Cadillac purchased a small operation in Rockford, Ill., and sent Williams there to manage the outfit. ''In 1965 I bought the company out and changed the name to Cardinal Glass Co. Now we have several other units in surrounding areas,'' he said."
