- 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."
