I haven't seen these quirky little magazines since I first started in business 19 years ago. So I'm pretty tickled to find them again. Houghton just celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015. To celebrate they printed a special issue of the popular magazine which was closed down in 2008. These 13 I have now are nice and clean, all identical in format and design -- just different accent colors. They're small in size measuring just 4"x7" and are billed as a publication "for people who like to do their own thinking." Topics range from products made by the company and other interesting things that have nothing to do with it. Let's start with the industrial articles which include these products: Cindol lubricants high-temp lubes, Houghto-Safe 1120, Houghton custom molded rubber parts and I-rings and more. The rest of the articles cover these topics and more: Football as big business, metal-working in a blind school, the big boom for small boats, Houghton in Sweden, Soccer Discovers America, the progress and problems of trucking, tuna fishing off Rhode Island, our farm paradox, in defense of industry, living costs around the world, and sports highest paid lightweights. The magazines measure 4" x7" and have 46 pages each. Issues include these: April 1964, Dec. 1964, Feb. 1967, June 1967, Dec., 1967, April 1968, June 1968, Sept. 1968, April 1969, Sept 1969, Dec. 1969, June 1971. Fall 1972.
