    Illinois Steel Corporation: Supervisor's Picnic (1949)

    An intersting look at industrial corporate life, this film documents the Carnegie Illinois Steel Corporation Homestead Division (one of the top steel companies in Illinois) supervisor’s picnic at the Lithuanian Country Club. At the picnic, the men enjoy playing baseball and horseshoes, eating traditional picnic fare like corn on the cob, and trying their hand at company picnic games. A piece of Illinois steel manufacturing history, this amateur film gem that shows off the culture of steel mill workers in the 1940s.
