I’m curious. How did Davidson make his money. Was he in any way part of the Auto Business- being from the Detroit area?

He owned Guardian Industries which supplied windshields and glass to the Big 3.

His company, Guardian Industries, produced flat glass for architectural, automotive, and mirror manufacture. He was VERY strong anti-union. When his plants voted unions in, he refused to bargain and would close the union plants and transfer production to other plants. He sometimes would re-open the plants later without the unions. He certainly knew how to avoid losing to the unions.

He was a great business man and will be missed by his employees.
