As a precursor to my talk From York Manufacturing Company to York Ice Machinery Corporation—The First Sixty Years of York Corporation, this is the first of a series of posts showcasing YORKCO ads from the 1930s.  This talk will initially be given as an OLLI presentation on Monday October 21, 2013 from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.


OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) at Penn State York is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization established to enrich the lives of adults.  Look over OLLI’s complete Fall 2013 Offerings through this link; my course is on page 6.

About Stephen H. Smith

Stephen H. Smith is a design engineer who worked at York International Corp. for 33 years before retiring several years ago to research and write books full time; his second career. The initial emphasis was on family history when he won a national award during 2002 for his first book “Barshingers in America." Positive feedback and that award were influential in his decision to retire early from engineering and start a retirement career.
