A Throwback Chart with a History

A tool that has an immigration story.

Posted: January 10, 2022 by Nanette Keir

Sometimes I come across a chart that has historical implications that I never realize until I look it up on the web.

This wheel chart for Polak’s Frutal was created as a converter for Imperial to Metric, but it’s the back story in the company that held my interest. Polak’s Frutal was incorporated in 1914 in Holland. They manufactured and sold essential oils, perfumes, and flavoring extracts in their plant. In anticipation of Holland being invaded by the Germans during World War II, family members moved to the United States in 1939-1940. They brought their knowledge of manufacturing their formulas with them. Holland was invaded and, the Germans seized their plant. But because the family had immigrated here, they continued to thrive in the United States.

There aren’t too many times that a chart has an immigration story attached to it.
