10 Sept. 21, 1949 Mason City Globc-Gasette, Masoii City, la. He Planned Cement Plant, Stayed on as Chief Engineer "It isn't every cement plant that has the good luck to have the man who planned it come back to become its chief engineer,',' wrote President Hanford MacNider in the September number of the Northwestern States Portland Cement company employes magazine, "Run of the Mill." "Away back in 1906, Walter Maytham drew up the plans for the Mason City plant and as its architect supervised its construction. Our plant, was only one. of dozens scattered across the United States and Canada which he had designed or had a part in conceiving, but to us at least and to him, we hope, it was the best of the lot Was Exacting: Work "That is borne out by the fact that when the day came that ( W. J' decided it was time to settle down in one place he came back to Mason City to turn his advisory connections with North' western States into the permanent position of chief engineer. It has been a demanding job all along but ne^er of such importance as it is right now. "The wear and tear of continuous operation over 40-odd years,- plus the baling wire period forced upon us by the scarcities of .the war years, had piled up a backlog of 'necessary rehabilitation which is only now really in full swing. All the engineering and planning fell upon 'W. J.' all at once and he and his assistants are and have been busy 'men, indeed. Knew His Engineer "After all, few units of our industry have had the good'fortune to hold their original planner with them. When the day came which called for such a heavy program of modernization, 'W. J.' not only Globe-Gazette Photo \V. J. MAYTHAM knew his engineering but he knew our plant as only a parent can know his child. In addition to high technical skill and 'know how,' — has something else—a touch of genius which across the years and through all our long stretch of operations has made our plant one of the great units of the whole construction industry. "We shall always be proud of Walter Maytham and the big pile of concrete, steel and machinery which constitutes our plant—the creation of his busy drawing board and a powerful set of technical gray matter. It's a monument to him of which any man could well be proud. "We are proud of them both— the plant and 'W. J.'!"
