Looking to the Future

By 1940, John Scowcroft, founder of Scowcroft and Company of Ogden, Utah, maker of Scowcroft Never Rip Overalls, had been dead for 38 years, and his great grandson Brent was already 15. Brent Scowcroft (still alive at 93 years old), would go on to achieve the rank of Lieutenant General in the USAF and serve as National Security Advisor to two Presidents. See Chapter 1: Junction City of The Strategist: Brent Scowcroft and the Call of National Security.

Never Rip

From the Ogden Standard (Ogden City, Utah), June 2, 1913.

Methane too!

After you get gas, you need to wear your Let 'er Rip overalls.

Recycled roofing

Part of the roof seems to be made from an old Firestone tires sign.
