Tom Dimitroff finally has his new book out. The Houghtons of Corning New York: Five Generations of Brilliance.
Amory Houghton, a New England businessman moved his small glass making business to Corning, NY in 1868. Since that time five successive generations of the Houghton family built this firm into a Fortune 500 high tech company of today. Tom argues that in so doing, the Houghtons have shown great loyalty to their community, their employees and their customers.
Tom is an honorary member of the Carder Steuben Club. He taught in the Corning Public School system for 35 years. He is a frequent lecturer, and would have presented at this year's Symposium on this book, but for a COVID-19 pandemic.
Any student of Carder Steuben should read this book to help understand the connection between Steuben Glass Works and Corning Glass Works. The book can be ordered directly from Tom - and he'll sign it for you (Amazon can't do that) - for $56.95 - includes tax and shipping.
Checks should be made payable and sent to:
