  • Studebaker heritage at Lowe's Home Improvement

    After ceasing automotive production Studebaker was merged with Worthington Corp. to form Studebaker-Worthington Corp. In 1979 Studebaker-Worthington was acquired by McGraw-Edison in 1985 Cooper Industries acquired McGraw-Edison.

    Today I purchased a GFCI (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter) switch at Lowe's Home Improvement to replace one near our master bedroom sink that had gone bad. The GFCI switch was made by Cooper Industries, so the way I figure it I just bought an electrical item with Studebaker heritage.

    Most of my books in grade and high school were published by McGraw-Edison, so I guess I was Studebaker educated.

      You sure you don't mean McGraw-Hill? No relation there, I think.

        McGraw-Hill is a totally different company from McGraw-Edison. McGraw Electric Co. in 1957 bought Thomas A. Edison Inc. to form McGraw-Edison.

          Evidently I wasn't that well educated, lol.
