MANY of the older readers of the AMERICAN GAS LIGHT JOURNAL will remember Mr. John Gimper, for many years Superintendent of the Galveston (Texas) Gas Company, and prior to that in a like capacity at Leavenworth, Kansas, and Springfield, Missouri. He was a charter member of the Western Gas Association and one of its leading men when it was merged with the American Gas Institute. About six years ago Mr. Gimper decided that he had worked long enough and retired to Pasadena, California, to spend the balance of his life quietly. But the old war-horse found that he was still appreciated by many people, and last month allowed himself to be elected to the presidency of "The California Glass Insulator Company” of Long Beach, near Los Angeles. The Company may be congratulated to have secured Mr. Gimper's services, for while he was a "Gas-man” and now will be a "Glass-man,” there is no word like “Failure” for Mr. Gimper. He is bound to be a success in whatever he undertakes.
