The Baltimore Works located at Point Breeze the Company produced cable, wire, telephone cords for use on switchboards and on the customer’s telephone, and special types of telephone equipment. The Western Electric Co. announced plans in 1983 to close the Baltimore Works, Baltimore, Maryland that manufactured (coaxial/marine cables, telephone wire). At its peak in 1944, there were some 8,900 workers now down to 3,500 employees. The closing of the Baltimore plant, built in 1929, follows similar announcements affecting plants in Kearny, N.J., and Hawthorne in Chicago.
The councils and clubs in region 133 are now all closed or closing and the members are being moved to the chapter level. It is with mixed emotions that our activity has diminished to the point where we have only 5-7 active volunteers and they have limited abilities. In the next few weeks actions will be taken to transfer all members and remaining funds if any, to the New Outlook group. With a reorganization of New Outlook being discussed in the future, we will make the major movement of members at that time.
Dave Haught, Chapter President will coordinate the transition.
