Among the Burt Roozee papers I recently acquired is this employee recruitment flyer. This rare, post-WWII ephemera is letter-folded and printed on both sides on the same coated sheet that Vandercook used for catalogs. The plant on N. Kilpatrick Ave., shown above, was built by the company in 1928, its replacement was built on W. Touhy Ave in 1954.

  1. Sounds like descent working conditions. R.O. Vandercook claimed that he allowed union representatives to talk to employees, but that his workers didn’t feel the need to organize. I don’t know if this this situation later changed. If I find out I will post.
