Biographical Sketch - Jack K. Paquette

            Jack Paquette was born in Toledo, Ohio, in 1925.  After his mother died, Paquette’s father could no longer care for him and his two brothers during the Depression.  In 1933 when Paquette was 8 years old, his father placed him in the Lucas County Children’s Home in Maumee. Despite the institutional setting, Paquette recalled later that he had many fond memories of growing up there.  He was adopted at the age of 13, but his early experience living in the Children’s Home led to a life-long commitment to the home and service as a trustee on the Lucas County Children’s Services Board.
            Overcoming his difficult childhood, Paquette graduated from Ross High School in Fremont, Ohio, and spent three years on active duty in the Naval Reserve during World War II.  After the war, he attended The Ohio State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in journalism in 1949 and a master’s degree in political science in 1951. He worked full-time as a journalist on a Columbus newspaper while attending the university.
            While employed by the Columbus newspaper, Paquette realized he did not want to continue in the journalism field.  Two Owens-Illinois executives recruiting in Columbus in 1951 interviewed Paquette and offered him a job.  Years later, he admitted “I had never heard of the company.”
            He began working for Owens-Illinois in July of that year as a creative writing specialist. Paquette advanced through the company, serving in a variety of advertising and marketing management positions and as a supervisor in the Libbey Glass Division’s Toledo factory. In 1967 he became Director of Organizational Planning, and two years later was appointed a vice president of the company’s Administrative Division and established its first corporate relations department. His responsibilities included public affairs, press relations, advertising, internal communications, and corporate contributions. He directed corporate relations for eleven years, and in 1981, became assistant to company chairman Edwin D. Dodd. During his years at Owens-Illinois, Paquette worked closely with J. Preston Levis, chairman from 1961 to 1963; Raymon H. Mulford, chairman from 1963-1972; Edwin D. Dodd, chairman from 1972 to 1983, and Robert J. Lanigan, who was chairman when Paquette retired in 1984. In 1982, Paquette became assistant to the executive office and served in that capacity until he retired in July 1984.
            Paquette was also involved in many professional and community organizations. For more than fifteen years he served as trustee of the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association, and in 1980 was named president of the Bowling Green State University Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit organization designed to seek and manage private gifts to BGSU.  He was the Owens-Illinois corporate liaison officer for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and honorary director of the Greater Toledo Area Chapter, American Red Cross. He was also a member of the Toledo Area Council Executive Board, Boy Scouts of America.
            Paquette co-founded both the Columbus and Northwest Ohio chapters of Sigma Delta Chi, the national professional journalism society, and was a member of the board of governors of the Advertising Club of Toledo. He served as chairman of the U.S. Savings Bond Campaign in Lucas County, and as a trustee of the Greater Toledo YMCA. He was founding director of the Press Club of Toledo and held a number of positions with the United Way of Northwest Ohio. He was chairman of the government relations committee of the Glass Packaging Institute in Washington D.C. and was a member of the Advisory Board of Mercy Hospital in Toledo.
            Other civic activities include serving as a trustee of the Toledo Repertoire Theatre, president of Crosby Gardens, chairman of Toledo’s Riverside Hospital Foundation.  He is a member of the President’s Council of the Toledo Museum of Art, the President’s Club of Bowling Green State University, the advisory board of Maine’s Mid-Coast Hospital, and the Toledo Club.
            He married the former Jane Russell of Fremont, and they have two sons and two daughters.
            Some years before he retired from Owens-Illinois, Paquette began researching the glass industry in Northwest Ohio.  After he retired, he spent nine years researching and writing Blowpipes, which was published in August 2003 by Xlibris Corporation.  The book chronicles the glassmaking industry throughout the region, including information on many small companies that had been lost to history.  It also includes material on glassmaking technology in the 1880s and the rise and fall of the child labor system that the glassmaking industry had helped to create. In addition to Blowpipes, Paquette wrote two other books about the glass industry:  The Glassmakers, and A History of Owens-Illinois, Inc., 1818-1984.

 

Scope and Content Note

            The Jack Paquette Collection on Northwest Ohio’s Glass Industry is divided into three series:  research files created by Paquette during his work on the book Blowpipes; files documenting Paquette’s tenure at Owens-Illinois, Inc., and audiovisual materials (including glass artifacts).  The collection should prove valuable to researchers because of its documentation of smaller, forgotten glass companies that once existed throughout the region.  Also important is the information on Owens-Illinois Inc., since little other documentation on the history of this company is available to researchers.
            Series I, Glass IndustryResearch Files, includes newspaper clippings on each of the companies chronicled in Paquette’s book, Blowpipes.  Included is information about small companies in Bloomdale, Bowling Green, Findlay, Fostoria, Maumee, North Baltimore, Tiffin, Toledo and Welker.  In addition to the small companies that no longer exist, more extensive files are included on the larger companies still in operation, such as Libbey-Owens-Ford and Owens-Corning.  Also included in the research files are galley proofs for the book and reviews of Blowpipes.
            Series II, Owens-Illinois Files, documents both the company’s history and Paquette’s tenure with the company.  The series is divided into three subseries:  Financial and Corporate Materials, Printed Material, and Speeches.  Financial and Corporate Materials include information on the financial status of the company as reported in quarterly reports, stock and shareholder reports, and annual reports.  The annual reports cover the years 1929 to 2002, and are complete for these years.  Additional material includes bylaws of the Board of Directors, biographies and photographs of O-I executives, and an unpublished history of the company written by Paquette in 1953.  Printed materials include various newsletters of the company, press releases, newspaper clippings about the company, and a personal biography of R. W. Lock written about his career at O-I. 
Speeches and personal papers consist of texts written by Paquette as director of corporate relations for several O-I executives, particularly those written for Edwin D. Dodd covering the years 1968 to 1984.  Also included are speeches written for Robert J. Lanigan, J. Preston Levis, William F. Spengler, and R. H. Mulford, as well as scattered personal papers
Series III, Photographs, Slides, and Videotape, includes slides about the Libbey-Owens-Ford Company, photographs of Owens-Illinois and video tapes, including a production on Michael J. Owens and the glass bottle machine, and speeches by Glen Hiner, chief executive officer of Owens-Corning, Inc. 
Series IV, Artifacts, includes several souvenirs produced for milestones in Toledo’s glassmaking history, and an example of the “one-way” beer bottle produced by Owens-Illinois, one of the first glass bottles produced as a “non-returnable” beverage container.
In addition to the above material, Paquette donated 27 books on glassmaking and northwest Ohio history.  A list of the titles is attached as an appendix to this finding aid.  These books have been individually cataloged and added to the holdings of the Ward M. Canaday Center.  Catalog records for the books indicate they are the gift of Jack K. Paquette.  Included in these items are three books written by Paquette:  Blowpipes:  Northwest Ohio Glassmaking in the Gas Boom of the 1880s (2002), A History of Owens-Illinois, Inc. (1985), and The Glassmakers: A History of Owens-Illinois, Inc. (1994).
