He had just returned home from flying B17's over Europe in World War II. The Lt. Colonel purchased America's oldest operating quarry which had been operating since 1758, on the banks of the Delaware River, in Bucks County, PA. In the beginning, Joe would cut stone early in the day, and then at night would put on his salesman hat and go out to sell the stone veneer that he had just produced. Princeton University was one of Joe's first customers.
