Lynn Morrison Joins WG in the Late 1960s

During the late 1960s, we had picked up some winter business for Magnolia by making ladle brick for Drexel Refractories. Lynn Morrison, a young ceramic engineer with prior experience at Harbison-Walker, was manager of the Drexel refractories operation. Lynn and I got along well. I asked Lynn, if he left Drexel, to consider WG. About two years later Lynn called, we talked, and he came with WG as vice president of operations with authority over sales and production. Improved quality was necessary and I felt authority over orders accepted was one requirement to improve quality. Lynn then served as CEO of the company. As years passed and he became more familiar with the business, he took over more and more of the daily operation.
