  • Foundry Related Question

    I was wondering if any one on this Forum know or have any connections or know of anyone who had worked in the foundry when it was a foundry and not after. I have a quite a collection of photos of the foundry and I have some questions regarding when it was a foundry.

    One of my cousins worked summers in the Foundry while going to college in the early 50's.

      Don't know anybody who actually worked there, but do know quite a bit about the building. A lot of people here on this forum know about it too. What questions do you have about it?

        This publication has 32 pages and 64 photographs. Quite comprehensive.

            John Nemeth may be a source of some foundry information. While I met him in Naples, he may have been visiting and have a permanent home in another area. Nemeth was a name heard from time to time in South Bend. Very nice gentleman and SDC members there may know him or know of him.

                So Chris, what were you doing at Bill's Body Shop, where "our" John Nemeth hangs out???

                I really believe they are referring to a different one in management at Studebakers, although "our" John Nemeth was who told me about Studebakers burying blocks in the ground to "age" them. Hey, maybe that is what’s taking the Foundry demolition crew so long to finish up ...they are digging up all those well "aged" R5 Studebaker blocks!!!

                  The above mentioned John Nemeth ( by Bob Bryant) and the local John Nemeth (pictured in the above thread) are two different people. The surname Nemeth is a very common Hungarian name around here and John is probably the most common given name among males of Hungarian background.

                    , not John!!!

                    My Grandfather & Great-Grandfather were both named , both born in Hungary and both worked for Studebakers.

                      Yup, and you bet your dupa I'm polish... (and hungarian).
                      I saw the John Nemeth I know going down Gertrude today. I didn't have school today so I hung out at Steve & Genes for a while today.

                            This website for the SW Florida SDC club has a photo of John Nemeth's Lark wagon on the lower right if that helps you identify the correct one. I thought he was from Punta Gorda and it appears there are three John Nemeths living there! There are almost enough Hungarians that St. Dyngus Day could be celebrated! I miss that annual fun time.

                              This may help acandilas in his search for the correct John Nemeth. Also, the SDC membership directory could help narow down the search. It has been a while, but he may have been a Purdue graduate. Studebaker was his first job after college.
