1978 -- Interesting Bogard paperwork


Recommended Posts

I got a decent amount of paperwork from the Heaton/Bogard office building before it got demolished. I just started sorting through some of it. Here are some interesting things, including checks to MK for larger marbles and cullet (Bogard didn't have machines to make larger marbles). Also deposits from ATARI (????!!!) and Monsanto (I guess they used marbles in medicine manufacturing?). Also checks to Berry Pink and sand companies etc... I noticed Jack took a salary of $1k per week in 1978. Pretty good money, especially back then. Lots of other Bogards worked there too.

Great info.  Wow, 22.5 tons of cullet!  Now to get the book started..

Great work on saving all this history, Chuck. The contrast in the two cullet checks is interesting - the MK cullet is a penny a pound, pretty typical I think. The one to Bogard Cullet Co. is a lot of cash.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Pretty sure 13.5K worth of cullet is a lifetime's worth and maybe then some. Who knows.

I have tons more but it would mostly be boring. They spent a lot on natural gas lol, imagine that! 

Here I have matched up the invoice from Vitro, the check it was paid with, and the stub. Notice the time lapsed between the date the invoice was issued and when it was paid. 😮
