Memories of Sprague Electric

03/13/2013 2:36 PM

There are no coincidence

Born in June 26,1931 in the North Adams Hospital, I met my Mother _in Law, Annie Cronin. She came to North Adams with Lewis Cronin and Sprague Electric. He was the origional Superitendant at Brown Street. Many years later I was transfered to Withita Falls Texas to be plant superintendant of the temporary location mill with three foot walls to set up manufacture of IBM resistor/capacitor circuits. I enjoyed reading Steve's description four part description!

I am presently retired from Burr Brown Research Corporation and attempting to make an desparately needed impact on Public Education. I will be encourageing discussion in this area. As a Crossing Guard, I will be using the pen name "Mr. Larry" as given me by my crossing parents.

Mr. Larry Hobson

Hi Jack,

One of our most fond cruse was from Acklund New Zealand back to Los Angeles. We particularly enjoyed Bay of Islands. I got a kick out of seeing streets named "Hobson".

I understand Hobson's Choice was taken from a livery new to the University. All the horses were not getting equal exercise so Hobson exercised picking the horse was Hobson's choice - no choice at all. Thanks for the welcome

Mr. Larry
