Photograph of Clarage workers, entitled “Your guess”

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 19
The items contained within this collection date from the era of Charles Clarage’s son, Harry Clarage. During the time of Harry Clarage, the company experienced an expansion in scope, and a subsequent need for facility expansion. In 1957, Clarage Fan Company upgraded from their previous plant of 200,000 sq. ft. to one of 340,000 sq. ft. From there, the company continued to thrive, was seen as a lucrative opportunity to outside investors, and was purchased by Twin City Fan Companies Ltd. in 1997. Under the ownership of Twin City Fan, Clarage has grown to become an internationally based producer, and is still in operation today.
