Lucas County, OH Biographies

A representative of one of the pioneer families of Ohio, Arthur Burr Taggart is prominently identified with manufacturing interests of this city as secretary and general manager of the Toledo Glue Appliance Company and has become recognized as a sagacious and enterprising young business man who has already won a substantial measure of success, although he has not yet reached the age of thirty years. He was born in Canton, Ohio, March 17, 1894, and is a son of James Arehur and Mary L. (Lyon) Taggart, who are also natives of the Buckeye state.. The father is now living retired in Washington, D. C. The mother is a resident of Toledo.

Arthur Burr Taggart, their only child, attended the grammar schools and the Central high school of Toledo and after completing his education began assisting his father, who was then engaged in the manufacture of heavy machinery, gaining a comprehensive knowledge of this line of work. Following the retirement of James A. Taggart the subject of this review has continued in this business, in which he has been very successful, and is now secretary and general manager of the Toledo Glue Appliance Company. The concern manufactures machinery for preparing and. applying glue for all purposes and has developed a very large trade in this connection, its output being shipped to all parts of the world. From fifteen to thirty persons are employed in the operation of the plant and the special type of machinery which the conceit manufactures is applicable to many uses. Mr. Taggart has made an exhaustive study of the subject and has published the result of his investigations, being the author of "The Glue Book" and the "Glue Manual," which are now used extensively as textbooks in a large number of schools and which have had a large circulation both in this country and abroad.

On the 6th of June, 1917, Mr. Taggart was married to Miss Lula W. Sallume, a daughter of Dr. N. N. Sallurne, a well known physician of this city. A son, Arthur Burr Taggart, Jr., was born to Mr. and Mrs. Taggart on April 14, 1922. They are members of the First Congregational church of Toledo and in politics Mr. Taggart maintains an independent attitude, placing the qualifications of a candidate above all other considerations. He is a junior member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, belongs to the Toledo Commerce Club and is a Knights Templar Mason, while in the Scottish Rite Consistory he has taken the thirty second degree. He enlisted for service in the World war and was commissioned at Camp Hancock. He was with the Signal Corps at Washington, D. C., and later was transferred to the aviation department. He is an unusually capable and progressive young business man whose well developed powers have placed him among the foremost representatives of industrial interests in the city, and judging from what he has already accomplished the future holds for him unlimited possibilities.
