Description

Photograph of John A. Keck (d. 8/7/1928). He was the proprietor of the Keck Cigar Box Factory. He was a printer for Kimball and Lindsay Co. and Mueller Manufacturing Co. He was also a cabinet maker for Decatur Furniture Co. Keck went into business for himself in 1882, and by 1917, he had the largest paper box factory in Illinois. He later sold the paper box factory, but continued to make cigar boxes. The factory was first located on E. Main St. above the Review, and later moved to the northeast corner of Church St. and Wood St. The photo was taken by Vandeventer, and ran in the Decatur Herald on February 25, 1906.
