Of the Hemingray Glass Co.


The Hemingray Glass Co. was established in 1848 and is one of the foremost manufacturers of glass insulators which are extensively used by telephone, telegraph, electric light and central station companies. Mr. Hemingray was known by representatives of the majority of public utilities with which his company had business relations and his departure is keenly felt by them as well as by his business associates.

The splendid business which has been built up largely through Mr. Hemingray's untiring efforts will perpetuate his name.
