Replogle: World's largest globe manufacturer.

Luther Replogle had a dream of "a globe in every home" and theorized that people in their homes would value a globe to pinpoint the locations of current events and try to make sense of the world around them. 

Living in Chicago during the World's Fair in 1933, proved to be the beginning of his breakthrough.  Replogle Globes offered an 8-inch souvenir globe designed specifically for the fair.  And working with Chicago retail legend, Marshall Frield & Co., they made and sold over 100,000 during the fair's two year run.  Business was booming and then, an unexpected endorser appeared.  During Franklin Delano Roosevelt's fireside chats, the President encourage the American public to "Now get out your globe," as he would begin discussing foreign affairs and global hot spots.  And more and more people wanted a globe in their home. 

As the world changed around him, Luther continued his dream.  Through personal tragedy and international events, he persevered.  And when Pearl Harbor was bombed a new surge in the desire and need of globes grew.  From the tragedy of war, Replogle made a name for itself and set the standard for the globe industry.
