One thought on “Western Felt Works, est. 1899

  1. I worked at Western felt from from 1954 to 1964. They paid for my MBA. One of the two founders was my grandfather Henry Faurot. The other founder was my grandfather’s brother-in-law, George Silverthorne. Like many family businesses, they split along family lines and like many family businesses the company was sold and later liquidated. I bought 100 shares at $35.00/share and received $3.50/ share on liquidation. I believe that, at age 90, I am the sole surviving employee!
