History/Personnel:

  • "The Cadillac Glass Company, Detroit, Mich., was recently incorporated by Fred L. Stoker, Ray L. Martin and Henry J. Berndt with a capital stock of $500,000. The company's office and warehouse are located at 2570 Hart avenue, and they will carry in stock plate and window glass, rough and ornamental glass, and mirrors." —The Glass Industry, Vol. 2, No. 5, May 1921
  • 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." Flying High (USGlass magazine, subscription now required)
