Meek’s was founded in 1919 in Springfield, Missouri and now we’re officially turning 100!

Just for fun, Meek’s is officially as old as:

  • Grand Canyon National Park (Established as a national park in 1919)
  • Treaty of Versailles (signed June 28 in France, ending WWI and establishing the League of Nations)
  • The book “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” by V. Blasco Ibanez
  • Ripley’s Believe It or Not! (first appears as a cartoon under this title in The New York Globe on October 16)
  • The words copacetic, wonky, semi-trailer, radio, supercharge, heavy-lifting, penne, offline, chai, ad-lib, and bagel were just a few of the 309 words added in 1919 to the Oxford English Dictionary
  • The longest Tour de France race to date (3,455 miles)
  • Hotel Pennsylvania (Manhattan, New York)

We have a lot of fun things planned to celebrate the last century of business.
