Pope Machinery Corporation Celebrates Twenty-Fifth Anniversary

      Pope Machinery Corporation, Haverhill, Mass., builder of precision grinder spindles, recently celebrated the completion of twenty-five years of business life at a company dinner at which Francis Healy, chief engineer of the Automotive Division of the Van Norman Co., Springfield, Mass., was the guest speaker. Mr. Healy told of the part Pope spindles had played in the grinding of crankshafts for motors used by Army transportation trucks in China, and of the use of Pope spindles on Van Norman machines in Russia and South America and all parts of North America. Mr. Healy served as a lieutenant colonel of Army Ordnance during the war. Lyman B. Pope, founder and president of the company, traced its growth from an idea to an organization for precision production that delivered thousands of spindles, radar parts, and special aircraft engine milling machines on schedule for vital war production. A number of employees were presented with watches as a mark of appreciation for long service.
