A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 12: "Stick-to-itiveness" at Fuller

Newspaper Clipping, Minneapolis Tribune, November 23, 1952

"He's in the glue, paste and adhesives manufacturing business and he likes to describe it as one which holds the world together. There must be a generous sprinkling of the same products in his own makeup, because Elmer L. Andersen, president of the H. B. Fuller Co., is able to stretch himself out on a nationwide scale in business, all over the state as a legislator, and over many civic aspects in St. Paul. To do all that without coming apart at the seams, Mr. Andersen's friends insist, is due largely to the fact that he has a stick-to-itiveness quality matched only by his products."
