Grasselli Chemical Company of Gadsden c 1920-c 1940
Posted by: Doug Purcell (ID *****1006) Date: September 16, 2010 at 18:51:44

I am currently involved in research on Grasselli Chemical Company which operated in Gadsden during the 1920's and 1930's. The company was located at 126 Chestnut Street according to the 1929-1930 Gadsden and Alabama City Directory. Major Prestley (M. P.) Waits was the manager or superintendent of this facility until his death in June 1938.

When did Grasselli Chemical Company open for business in Gadsden and when did it close? Is any part of the original building , occupied by the company, still in existence? Are there any descendants of former Grasselli employees still living in Gadsden or the surrounding area. Grasselli Chemical Company consolidated with E.I. Du Pont de Nemours Company in 1928. M. P. Waits was my grandfather.

Any help offered with this query will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
