      The Davis & Thompson Co., Milwaukee, has filed articles of incorporation with an authorized capital stock of $100,000 to manufacture machine tools, machinery, etc. The organizers are Frank M. Davis, John T. Thompson and Edgar L. Wood, attorney. Messrs. Davis and Thompson have been developing a new design of continuous milling machine for the last two years and are now preparing to engage in quantity production at Milwaukee. Both formerly were officers of the Davis Mfg. Co., Milwaukee, now the motor works of Avery Co., Peoria. 111. A site for the proposed plant has been purchased and construction work will be undertaken early in the spring. Details will be announced soon.” (Quote from 1920.)
