Re: Cudahy meat reefers

They were definitely two separate companies although genetically
connected back in the nineteenth century. When I did my pitch on NRC
last year, my opening slide
was called "Cudahy Confusion" to explain this before anyone raised
their hand

Are there two separate Cudahy meat packing companies? The emails
make is
sound like there were different corporations.

But remember there was also a Patrick Cudahy, Inc. (successor to
the Cudahy Brothers company) located in Wisconsin, also in the meat
business. Nearby today is the town of Cudahy, Wisconsin (those other
Cudahy people gave rise to the town of Cudahy, California).
