Henry Adams Biography

1/21/1837 - 3/6/1917

Henry Adams was Born in Pine Valley, NY, on   January 21, 1837.  His school education was such as was to be had in the schools of Elgin, IL 30 or 40 years ago.  His mechanical education commenced in his father's shops where he learned the trade of an iron molder, and became thoroughly acquainted with the details of the business.  Upon the organization of the Sandwich Manufacturing Company, he was elected Superintendent of the mechanical department, which position he still holds.  Of his ability to fill the place the mechanical construction of the various implements turned out by the company is a more unerring certificate than anything which could be written. Henry passed away on March 3, 1917
