Louis became known as the Gateway to the West. After the Civil War, St. Louis grew to become the fourth largest city in the country. By the 1880s, it was a center of breweries, flour mills, tobacco products and slaughterhouses.Meanwhile, in Fort Worth, Texas, a young man named Nathan P. Dazey was learning the hardware business. His earliest recorded job (that I can find) was in 1879 as a salesman for Havens & Cowing, which specialized in hardware, stoves and tinware. In 1887, he turned up in nearby Dallas working as a clerk at Harry Bros.
Apparently, the Panic of 1893 hit Dallas hard, as it did many cities, and business and industry there slowed dramatically. While its unknown what became of Harry Bros.
In 1901 Dazey was managing a house furnishings and notions store in Dallas called Doolittle & Simpson. Information is sketchy, but apparently he began to make can openers and probably other kitchenware items and became interested in a glass jar churn developed by E. It seems Jones health wasnt good and Dazey felt his churn had merit, so in 1904 Dazey took over management of the company as well as a controlling interest. Dazey improved the Jones churn with different paddles and in May 1906 applied for a patent on a new and useful churn.This churn was square and not necessarily made of glass, and featured the milk receptacle inside a larger enclosure that [provided] means for hot or cold water [to] temper the milk in the body. In other words, the outer container could be filled with warm water in cold weather and cold water in warm weather, thus improving the churning action. At some point the outer water receptacle was discontinued.
At about the same time, Dazey moved the firm to St. Louis, possibly for greater ease of obtaining the necessary castings or maybe to take advantage of the more extended transportation network available there by rail and water. Nothing can be found about Mr.By 1910, Nathan Dazeys son, Jack, entered the firm and the business grew by leaps and bounds with various sizes of churns added to the lineup. By the time of World War I, Dazey was offering large electric churns in addition to the hand-operated models. One source says that when a wartime butter shortage occurred, Dazey came up with a Dazey butter churn that used one pound of butter and one pound of milk to produce two pounds of butter, but I can find nothing to verify that.
