Worker Wednesday

dividing bar

70 years ago this month, Higgins Industries began publishing a newsletter. Initially a monthly magazine entitled The Eureka News Bulletin, the company organ devolved into a weekly bulletin called The Higgins Worker (featured previously in this column). For older entries see the Worker Wednesday Archive.

The Higgins company newsletter was born out of the suggestion of a Higgins employee, electrician Leroy L. Hall, who was awarded a $25.00 Defense Bond for his suggestion. Volume 1 of the Eureka News Bulletin listed an Editorial Staff of ten and included a Women’s Editor, Staff Photographer, Sports Editor, and Hygiene Editor.

Stay tuned for more 70th Anniversary Worker Wednesday entries.
