    We have very limited information about the activities of Tillotson Construction of Omaha during the war, so far. The other two elevator builders we profile, J. H. Tillotson, Contractor, and Mayer-Osobrn of Denver, Colo,. began their operations after the war, but individuals working for both companies gained their experience during wartime, either at Tillotson Construction, or elsewhere.

    In the Tillotson company records, we found concrete elevator specifications beginning a few years before the war and resuming immediately afterward, but conspicuously absent were records of elevator construction during the war.

    However, we know Tillotson Construction was active between 1942 and 1945. We found one snippet in an old newspaper, which we transcribed on the blog: https://ourgrandfathersgrainelevators.com/2012/05/08/nebraska-firms-get-government-contracts/

    When we find more about the activities of the company during that time, we will certainly write about it here. It is an open line of inquiry and we are eagerly seeking more information. Thank you for your interest in our blog!
