Notes
Content: [typewritten on separate paper] (39c) Another one of the famous men connected with the Bethlehem Co. was John Fritz. Mr. Fritz born in Chester County in 1822 was apprenticed to a blacksmith at the age of 16. He began his connection with the steel industry in 1846 when he took employment with Moore & Hooven in the iron works at Norristown, Penna. From that time to the end of his life he was engaged by various iron and steel companies in different official capacities. It was largely due to his genius that the Bethlehem Company entered the field of armor plate manufacture and attained such a high reputation in it. Mr. Fritz was the originator of numerous devices and mechanisms some of which he patented.
