Eberhardt finds work at Atlas

Wednesday, January 24, 2018 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement Company Memorial Museum in Columns

Today, I continue part 2 of my interview with Mr. Paul Eberhardt, who set foot on American soil March 3, 1923.

When he came, Paul said, “I want to stay here my whole life and work like my brother.”
