Armour

Mr. Armour was the founder of Armour & Company. His meatpacking factories were the first to mass-produce canned meats, and the subsidiary Armour Refrigerator Line, a railroad car company, helped ship Armour products to distant markets, bringing the company to national prominence. Armour Meat Packing Plant opened in the Fort Worth Stockyards in 1902.
