|LONG-TIME SKILLED CRAFTSMAN - Edmund B. Barlow
of 89 Dalkeith Rd., who was retired after a lengthy career
in the telephone industry.
Barlow was foreman of the Stromberg-Carlson model shop
at the time of his retirement. His service in the field
of telephony dates back to the early days of telephone
pioneers more than 40 years ago. Most of his work has been
devoted to experimental and research aspects. His introduction
to telephone work began in 1904 in Elyria, Ohio, when he
joined the Garford Manufacturing Company. He came to Rochester
and became associated with Stromberg-Carlson in 1916.
Barlow, who is a member of the Telephone
Pioneers of America, has had a part in the growth of the
telephone to the vast system it is today. He confined himself
mostly advancements in the field during his work in the
experimental laboratory which later became the model shop.
