Looking Back to 1941: A New Barbed Wire in DeKalb

From the September 28, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"Henry A. Nelson, president of Central States Industrial Engineering of DeKalb, has been granted a patent on an improved type of barbed wire.

"The barbed wire which Mr. Nelson has perfected has what is described as a reverse twist of the two strands of wire being the center, between two barbs."

They don't call DeKalb the Barbed City for nothing.

It's a Sticking Situation.  --Cooter
