Batton Caterpillar History

Recently on The Greg and Dan Show, we spoke with the folks from the Cat Visitor’s Center about the new exhibit detailing the life and times of Cat’s first Chairman, C.L. Best.    During that conversation, Greg mentioned that his grandfather had worked at Cat before it was Cat.   Here’s a pic from the Cat archives showing Vern Batton being recognized for 19 years on the job.   The year was 1944.    Also, it is to be noted that either Mr. Batton was a giant or worked with very small dudes.
