The NEWS is not the only one celebrating an anniversary this year. Fifty years ago in western Michigan, Seaman’s Air Conditioning-Refrigeration was born in humble beginnings and now is recognized as a fine commercial HVAC company. And the company celebrated with a Red Cross blood drive.
After 85 years, it takes more than cosmetics to keep a publication fresh; the right attitude needs to permeate the organization. “This publication, The NEWS, was started by my great-grandfather in 1926,” said BNP Media co-CEO Taggart Henderson.
Congratulations to Bernard Nagengast, an engineering consultant and industry historian who found the oldest NEWS issue among our readers. His oldest issue was dated Nov. 30, 1926. The very first issue of the magazine was published in September of that same year.
