Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company Records
Indiana Harbor, Indiana


In 1913, Clayton Mark began to buy land in East Chicago, Indiana for a steel manufacturing plant. In 1917 he begun construction for the Town of Mark, aka Marktown. This was the first time an East Chicago industry built a town for its employees. The town was designed by Chicago architect Howard Van Doren Shaw. Original plans called for 30 sections, but only 4 were built, due to financial problems. The design was based on English Garden City concept, including a Market Square with a recessed garden and fountain in the center. For further information on the History of Marktown, including pictures, go this website.
Marktown has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 1916, Clayton Mark broke ground for the Mark Manufacturing Company and it begun its operations in East Chicago, across from Inland Steel, in 1917. In 1918, Mark Manufacturing merged with Schlesinger Brothers (raw materials) and becomes the Steel and Tube Company of America.

In 1923, the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company of Youngstown, Ohio, purchased all the property of the American Sheet Tube Company. In 2005, the ownership changed to Mittal Steel Company. For more detailed history of the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company (1900-1949) please visit this website.

At this website are images of the Indiana Harbor Works of the ore bridge and ore boat, number one blast furnace, electrolytic tinning lines, continuous cold reduction sheet and strip mill, in addition to a general aerial views and a partial view of the South Chicago Works.

According to Phyllis Bate, in The Development of the Iron and Steel Industry in the Chicago Area (Ph.D. thesis, University of Chicago, 1948), in 1929 there were 4,600 workers at the Youngstown Sheet & Tube Plant in Indiana Harbor. We have only 105 personnel cards out of many thousands of employees. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of any of these employee cards, the please complete the request form.
