A HISTORY OF NEENAH contemplated expansion in the township of Neenah, and had, far- sightedly, purchased acreage west of Highway 41. During 1955 a new finishing plant was begun on this property, which came into operation the following year. In 1956 ground was broken for a new office struc- ture east of the finishing plant, which was completed and occupied in 1957. The Jersild Knitting Company moved into its new building on First Street. The Manhattan Rubber Company, having outgrown its quarters in the Hewitt building, built its new plant on Cecil and Matthews Streets. A new office for Edgewater Paper Company ('52). Warehouse on Forest Avenue built by School Stationers Corpora- tion ('52). Neenah Electrotype Corporation purchased its plant from Mara- thon ('53). Entire interior of Hewitt Machine Company remodeled to ac- commodate a new Farrell roll grinder and to give space to the Stowe- Woodward Company ('54). Gilbert Paper Company rebuilt and enlarged its #3 machine ('54). Wisconsin Tissue Mills rebuilt its paper machine and replaced its converting and storage buildings with a new structure ('s6). After ten years with the architectural firm of O'Connor & Kilham of New York city, Frank C. Shattuck returned to his home town during the summer of 1953 and opened an office at 174 East North Water Street, under the caption Frank C. Shattuck Associates, Inc. Associated with him in this venture is Melvin F. Siewert. The firm has specialized in the design of college, church, residential and indus- trial building. This decade of expansion in every phase of community life was further punctuated by the Council of Social Agencies becoming a member of the Community Chest ('Si) and in 1953 broadening its name to Neenah-Menasha Community Council. The Optimist Club is added to the roster of Twin City service and luncheon organizations. 144
