This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...and in 1885 Swift & Co. was incorporated with a capital of $300,000 with Mr. Swift himself as president. The phenomenal growth of the business is a record in itself, and the additional capital was put in from time to time to meet successfully the demand for new and enlarged facilities, so that in a few years a business that was started with a capital of $300,000 and 1,600 employes, doing the slaughtering business in a few small buildings, has grown to a company with a capital of $150,000,000 and with over 60,000 employes and had reserves of over $200,000 a year. Gustavus Swift was a very shrewd far-seeing man. He was, in fact a business genius of unusual calibre. He blazed the trail as a pioneer for one of the biggest industries of the age. He was a member of the Methodist Church, a firm believer in the Christian faith, an honest and fair man, of few words, but of quick and effective action. He was a great educator in his business. His only intention was to make a better man of those he was associated with in daily life. Efficiency he constantly strove to develop. Among his many employes, he was an example of business efficiency himself. His criticisms were helpful at all times though they seemed to be at times severe. The vast business of Swift & Co. fell to the charge of Louis F. Swift, who was then the eldest of the eight surviving children, when his father died in 1903. Swift & Co.'s policy of service has been proved by the great growth from that early Barnstable building to the vast Chicago plant. In addition to its Chicago establishment, there are large plants at Kansas City, Omaha, East St. Louis, St. Paul, St. Joseph, Fort Worth, Denver and Portland. Combined, the Swift plant covers over 200 acres of land and gives...
