  • A superintendent and salesman form a partnership

    On September 1, 1940 Harold E. Anning, a general superintendent for the United States Gypsum Company (USG), and Ernest B. Johnson, a sales manager for USG, formed a partnership to do acoustical ceiling and gypsum roof deck work in Chicago, IL. Their company was named H. E. Anning Company.
