Fullerton Tool's founder, Morgan Arthur Curry, was the embodiment of what America represents. A place where a vision, hard work, and a life long commitment to reaching your dreams becomes a reality. Morgan was born on December 28, 1911 in Freeland, Michigan. He was the first child of Marlin and Rose (Leaman) Curry. After a childhood of arduous farm chores, Morgan vowed he would do whatever it took to get himself off the farm. At the age of 17, he entered the University of Michigan and went on to achieve a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1932. To get through the U of M financially, Morgan waited on tables, swept floors, and washed dishes for four years. He was very determined because he wanted to be the first Curry to receive a college degree. Surprisingly, his journey to leave the farm began by buying a farm (acquired from a "Homestead" by the government) and acquiring a milk route in 1932. Morgan continued to operate his milk route for three years until 1935. During that time frame he also opened and closed a new tire dealership. Later in 1935, he joined the Prudential Life Insurance Company and worked there until 1940. During that time he received a "bronze merit award" from the company for obtaining $50,000 worth of new business. In 1940 Morgan left to operate a general insurance agency for two years. Read More...
