  • Notes 
    • From "People and Events of Yesteryear: Charles Albert Squier", citation details below:

      Charles Squier began his career with the Battle Creek Machinery Co., predecessor of American-Marsh Pumps, Inc., learning the machinist trade. It was while with this firm that he recognized the need in industry and business of an extra heavy shipping tag.

      Charles and his father went to work on this idea. After designing a tag they were still faced with the problem of production. The two men built one machine after another, each better than the one before and finally evolved an automatic machine that would print, trim, reinforce and string a wire in the punched hole of the tag, all in one continuous operation. This machine was in operation by their American Mfg. Co. as early as 1888 and with addedre finements was used until the business here was sold in 1945. Members of the firm in its early days were Daniel and Charles Squier and Mr. Bromberg. [...]

      For many years the tag factory was operated at the rear of the Fremont street residence. Charles A. Squier, 73, died at his home on Nov. 26, 1934 and for the next 11 years the business was continued by his son, John B. Squier. It was then sold to a Chicago firm. The factory building is now used by Bernice Squier for her Twinzy Toy Co.
