In 1959, the company offered all
employees free immunization against
Polio and Tetanus. Dr. R. H. Martin,
plant doctor, and nurse Lou Alton
posed with “the big needle” for the
summer 1959 issue of Illustrated
News. The needle was made by
employees in the company’s foundry
pattern shop and represented the
amount of vaccine required to
inoculate all of Dofasco.
