  1. My grandfather, Ralph F. Stephen. Sr., was a manager there. He worked in Chicago at their facility in the 1930’s 40’s and into the 1950’s. I believe my father also worked there for a short time in the late 30’s.

  2. Crane Co. history on web site mentions new factory was built on 160 acres in 1912.. I know address is 4300 S. Kedzie. Where can I find the boundaries of this large site? I believe my Grandma’s house was adjacent.
