Homeshield Nostalgia

in the early '60's

If you are or were an employee of Homeshield, aka Nichols-Homeshield, aka American Screen Company, in Chatsworth, IL, or a current or former resident of Chatsworth, you will enjoy browsing through these old Homeshield newsletters from the early ’60s.

Kudos to Jeff Dehm for making the originals available for scanning. They were scanned as pdf files.

Notice the style of writing back then, also the manner of dress for supervisors.

If anyone has an issue not here, please scan to a pdf file and email to: Ken

UPDATE: In 2008 all equipment was moved from this building to the “new” building (built in1982) on the west side of Chatsworth. Some mills were moved to Homeshield’s Oregon plant, which is no longer in operation. A recycling company has since bought the building. The company is now known as Quanex Homeshield.
