PULASKI VENEER CORPORATION

The Pulaski Veneer Corp., was organized in February 1926, by Earl B. LANG and Charles E. TURNER, of Indianapolis, Indiana, with capital stock subscribed by local citizens. T.C. COLEMAN was elected president; Earl B. LANGE, general manager; Charles E. TURNER, secretary; C.E. RICHARDSON, treasurer; John S. DRAPER, first vice president; and J.F. WYSOR, second vice president. The plant began operations in October 1926.
In the spring of 1927 the Virginia Panel Corporation, with Hans A. PLOW as manager, was organized, the other officers and stockholders being practically the same as those of the veneer corporation, and the two companies operated in the same building. The Virginia Panel Corp. made plywood and the veneer corporation made face veneers. In June 1929, the two concerns were merged.
