Excerpt from Technology Quarterly, Vol. 4
The metal aluminum has certainly not been damned by faint praise On the contrary, from my experience as the president of an aluminum manufacturing company which has been endeavoring for the past two years 'and over to sell the commerc... ially pure metal in the markets, and to introduce it into the arts and manufactures of the country. I have to state to you as my conviction that one of the two chief difficulties encountered, and which today retards and restricts the wider use of the metal, is the extravagant, erroneous, and in many cases mischievously misleading, statements which have been made as to the properties of the metal, which have received wide circulation, not only through the daily newspapers, but, I am sorry to add, through many technical and scientific journals as well. The other difficulty is the almost equally widespread, and, so far, equally extravagant and misleading, series of claims made by the inventors of processes for the manufacture of aluminum at remarkably low prices.
