You are absolutely correct about the Ford plant at Berkley. It's been there
for a very long time and is still in operation. I recently heard that Ford
wanted to permanently close this plant within the next 3 or 4 years. It is
situated on the North side of Lambert St. Louis Metropolitan Airport.
I lived in Moberly from 1945 to 1950. My father was employed as a civil
engineer in the Division Engineers office of the Moberly Division. I worked
in the department during the summer while attending the University of
Missouri. Thus operations through Moberly and on the Moberly Division came
to my mind first. The Ford plant in Berkley was part of the St. Louis
Terminal Division operations.
