Worker Wednesday: Santa at Higgins

dividing bar

Seventy two years ago, on December 23, 1943, the Christmas issue of The Higgins Worker featured a Santa fattened by a kapok life jacket. Santa is seen here visiting with workers at the Higgins Industries St. Charles Avenue plant, one of eight facilities in which over 20,000 were employed by Higgins.
