Charles Hook Armco Steel Company Lot of Manuscripts & Documents Lot includes letters photographs pamphlets mostly from the late 1930s through the 1960s. Born in 1880 the youngest of four children of Henry and Katherine (Klussman) Hook Charles Ruffin Hook grew up in Northwest Cincinnati on Colerain Avenue just across the Miami and Erie Canal from the foot of Clifton hill. The early years were happy and mostly carefree but Charlie??Ts mother died in 1892 when he was just 12. The Panic of 1893 followed and in a little over a year the family went from a middle-class lifestyle to poverty. The company in which Hook Senior was employed was wiped out he ended up selling the family home the family broke up and Charlie and his brother Gay moved to Walnut Hills living with a kindly engineer Robert Engle. This also required Charlie to change from District No. 18 school to Walnut Hills High the first suburban school. There was no question that Charlie would have to work after high school college was out of the financial equation. He began to look to the long-term examining options such as coal lumber and other basic commodities; chemistry was his best subject in school; but he ended up deciding that steel was the most promising area ??" Carnegie had been poor and had no technical training so it should be possible to Charlie Hook to get into the business. With a letter of introduction arranged by his brother he appeared at the offices of Cincinnati Rolling Mill in Riverside west of the city (the site visited in the photo in this lot). When told the only opening was that of office boy Charlie jumped on the opportunity. He moved up quickly in the office but that put him at odds with boys his age who worked in the plant. One day when the plant was closed because of the annual spring floods a group of ?plant boys? tried to give Charlie a ?dunking? as he entered the flatboat that was used to ferry the office staff to their building which was on stilts and out of the water. Sensing what was coming Charlie turned the tables and toppled his tormentor into the water. The boatswain was John ?Roxy? Draut the night watchman and one of the other gentlemen with whom Hook would tour the site half a century later (photos in this lot). Roxy protected the young office boy for the duration of the flood walking him to and from the streetcar stop. He would become a veteran of the Middletown ARMCO plant. Charlie made himself indispensable at the Riverside plant finding solutions to many problems in management and production. But the plant failed to be profitable enough for the owners and was closed in late 1899. Many of the employees were absorbed into other Tin Plate Trust plants including Charlie. His supervisors made sure he had a position elsewhere; they sensed that the young man would contribute to the company. Charlie was reassigned to Chicago leaving everything familiar in the ?Queen City? behind. After barely 2 months in the Windy City the Trust decided to move Charlie??Ts entire department to New York City. Outfitting two trains one for desks and files the other for personnel the department was ceremonially moved to the Big Apple. It was winter and the boy from the Midwest was becoming homesick amid tall buildings with barely a blade of grass to be found. He had been in touch with others from the Riverside plant in particular William P. Lewis who had been transferred to the Gas City plant in Indiana. He begged Lewis for a job hoping to get back to an environment in which grass and trees lived. Lewis had an opening in the sheet bar yard but Hook needed approval for the transfer. Charlie decided that if he really wanted to learn the business he needed training in production. He made his case up the chain of command in New York with most treating him as if he were ready to be committed but Warner Arms vice-president in charge of operations decided to give him a chance and allowed the transfer to Indiana. Hook had remained in touch with his first boss at Riverside who had made sure he was reassigned to a Trust plant but had lost touch with the president of the plant. However these two men had remained in touch with each other and when they teamed up with George M. Verity to start up the American Rolling Mill Co. in Middletown Ohio one of the first people both men thought of to recruit for the new enterprise was Charlie. It was a fateful interview. Verity and Hook liked each other at once and had very similar philosophies about the business. Verity believed in people and tried to run his business by the ?Golden Rule ? a striking (even shocking) departure from the typical steel mill of the day. On top of that Verity decided to build a combined mill which used pig iron to produce ingots and slabs which were made into shapes and bars which were made into sheets and then galvanized or fabricated - what had been the domain of 5 different mills now would be done more efficiently (so Verity thought) in one mill. The rest of the industry was sure it would fail. But Verity surrounded himself with capable men like Hook who continued to take every opportunity to learn as much about the steel industry as he could ??" what worked and what didn??Tt in plants around the country. And eventually Hook and John Tytus developed a continuous mill and revolutionized the steel industry. To compete with the giants such as U.S. Steel Armco focused on specialty steels which required continual research. It became the first steel company to include a research department. It was the production of corrugated culvert pipe that generated interest overseas in railroad construction and ultimately led to Armco becoming an international company. ARMCO grew and prospered and Hook with it. By 1910 he became general superintendent. In 1913 he made his final ?life-path? move ??" he married Verity??Ts daughter Leah. More than a decade his junior Leah was still a schoolgirl when Hook came to Middletown and looked upon him as ?Uncle Charlie.? But as she matured she and ?Uncle Charlie? found they had many interests in common. Charlie continued to make connections even on the couple??Ts honeymoon in Europe most notably to George Lorimer editor of the Saturday Evening Post. The couple had two sons and a daughter. The images in the photo book appear to be primarily the first-born Charles Jr. although a few show both boys just a couple years apart in age. Armco??Ts labor policies also served the company well. By letting the employees know that they were part of the company and providing them with the best equipment and working conditions technology allowed the company prospered. In a 1937 article on Armco Forbes pointed out that in the second quarter of that year alone the good relations with labor and the fact that they did not strike probably saved the company 5 million (compared to a similar-sized company that had picketing and rioting in its plant). Any problems any new changes were always discussed with employees. Any employee could make an appointment with Verity or Hook or other management official and express his viewpoint air problems etc. without patronizing or judgment. Armco also saw itself as a good neighbor in Middletown and later wherever there were Armco plants. Verity and Hook tried to make life better for all city residents ??" everything from supporting scouting to expanding the American Legion for veterans during the Second World War to creating organizations for naturalizing citizens. Even those who did not interact often with the top management knew of them and their works. After George Verity died in 1942 employees of the plant a year later suggested a day of service to remember his neighborly actions and Founder??Ts Day was born. The first Founder??Ts Day saw 30 beds being donated to the Children??Ts Fresh Air Camp and a family that had been burned out of their home had a cash gift to begin rebuilding. A later Founder??Ts Day in Australia had a lift designed and built by Armco engineers for getting spastic children in and out of beds and baths. A couple of Founder??Ts Day programs are included in this lot along with Verity??Ts memorial and program from the dedication of his statue. Several brochures relating to the history of Middletown are certainly also related to the sense of community in the Armco ranks. As Hook??Ts methods of labor relations proved viable and the depression struck Charlie was looked at more and more for national offices. The National Association of Manufacturers tried to get him into their top position in 1934 but Verity could not spare him in the depths of the depression. Four years later he did serve as President of NAM. He became an industry spokesman in Washington and served on a number of committees there. He was also increasingly in demand as a speaker and one of his typescripts for a luncheon speech is in this lot. We need more Charlie Hooks today. Over decades he ?preached? that in the American incentive system the individual is of primary importance. ?If industry is to have its story accepted by the public it must expose abuses in the ranks and condemn improper business practices as quickly as it opposes legislation which it considers obstructive to business progress. It must show unimpeachable good faith. The place to begin is at the grassroots. The way to win confidence in and respect for all industry is for each company to be a good honorable desirable citizen at home.? We seem to have forgotten these old principles in a new century. Hook and others were convinced that they would need to convert to war production sooner than later. He met with some of his Washington friends and realized that the plans were nearly a decade and a half old and most companies had grown and changed considerably. Hook was front and center in redrafting the plans to convert industry to defense a plan decisive in the production records set by industry a mere three years later. Armco??Ts war-time production is outlined in one of the brochures in this lot. As President of NAM he worked toward collaboration of government and industry. He went to England to study labor relations then went to Sweden for the same purpose. As he was leaving the office he set out a 5-point policy for industrial and national welfare that included collaboration of government and industry to raise the standard of living elimination of government competition with the private sector rebuilding tax structures national labor policy based on common sense and fairness (to both labor and management) and a ?square deal? (not a new deal) for business for them to create nine million new jobs. (Anything sound familiar here?) Within a few months however unemployment was zero. On December 14 1941 Charlie Hook had other appointments notably to the War Labor Board made up of 12 members of industry and 12 of labor. Business leaders included presidents/chairmen of SKF Bell Aircraft U.S. Rubber Ingersoll Milling Machine Studebaker American Type Founders American Hawaiian Steamship Champion Paper GE ??" critical industries in a wartime economy. Shortly after he was sent to England to see if steel production could be increased and decide which country could best make what war material. After many days of work Hook was ready to report back to President Roosevelt. As he was boarding the plane at Herndon he was introduced to an American General who was escorting his British counterpart to the same transport. That General turned out to be Dwight Eisenhower. Hook would cross paths with Eisenhower again in Britain during the war. So respected were Hook??Ts processes and opinions that immediately after the war as the U.S. military was going into peacetime mode (they thought) President Truman called on Hook to study and recommend changes in pay of armed services. After the war Hook was involved in many ventures including Junior Achievement. He also promoted some college programs always with the goal of ?selling the basic concepts of the American way of life? - to youth to the public to foreigners to anyone who would listen. One person who got wind of Hook??Ts program was Dwight Eisenhower then president of Columbia University. Hook was invited to Columbia where he spent half a day laying out his program for the president and forming a lifelong friendship. Many years of government service is reflected in the letters from Ike and Nixon although earlier communications (such as FDR and Truman) are not among this particular group of papers. In 1950 Armco celebrated its half-century anniversary. The company put on a party at all of its plants. In Middletown alone the assembled well-wishers consumed 382 000 hot dogs and similar amounts of other comestibles. Just a year before Middletown celebrated Charles R. Hook Day with a testimonial dinner in Middletown??Ts Hotel Manchester attended by Generals an Admiral and a thousand others. A copy of the souvenir of this event is included here. Charlie was given two bound volumes with the originals of these letters telegrams and other well-wishes of his friends and associates. Charlie continued to talk to anyone who would listen over the next decade and had his chance at numerous award ceremonies. Although he never went to college he did take a few correspondence courses in engineering but learned most of the industry by rolling up his sleeves in the mills and talking to those who knew. He was awarded the medal for the advancement of metallurgical research in 1947 the Henry Laurence Gantt Medal in 1950 and eleven honorary degrees by colleges and universities. Hook retired in December 1960 at the age of 80 but continued doing whatever he could to promote industry and the American ideal. He still went to his office every day as his physical condition allowed. He died in 1963 at 83 years of age. Lot includes: Numerous letters over a period of a couple decades to the White House and Department of Labor. Some have autopen or secretarial signatures but at least one Nixon letter may be authentic (or a new autopen pattern!) but 3 others have identical ?Dick? signatures and are likely autopen (they match one known autopen ?Dick Nixon?). A fourth letter signed ?Dick? with a slight difference may be authentic. There are many Eisenhower letters all initialed ?D.E.? There are 8 with slightly different initials some of which may be authentic. One without periods after the initials may be proxy/secretarial ??" we think he usually put periods after initials when he wrote them. All are on either light green White House letterhead or Ike??Ts personal DDE letterhead paper. Many more items in this folder are copies of what Hook sent to the various presidents including his copies of telegrams sent to Eisenhower. Folder labeled ?White House ??" President? with photographs (15) of Presidents Ronald and Nancy Reagan 4 living presidents (2) (Reagan Nixon Bush (41) and Ford) plus another with same four and their wives Bill and Hillary Clinton Republican leaders (Bob Dole Newt Gingrich Jack Kemp) some individual some in groups. Also a few ?certificates? or ?awards.? All seem to be rewards for donations and other support to the party. All signatures are in the photo. In addition there is a banner that is still in its packaging. One can see ?Republican President? in gold letters and one grommet but what the rest says is not certain (that label has been torn off the box ??" it probably had the address on it). Miscellaneous papers including an address given by Hook at a luncheon of the Union League Club Chicago 17 May 1940 entitled ?Wake Up America and Save the Private Enterprise System ? and a number of pages removed from a 3-ring binder most are photographs of maps and buildings in Middletown.
