That leaves only one detail: Did Universal Portland Cement exist before its incorporation? Not that it makes any difference. My guess is that FLW transposed '10' as '01'. The Universal Portland Cement Co. was incorporated as a new concern in 1906 to take over the cement business of the Illinois Ste...
