Preston Root

This weekend, Copenhagen visited Copenhagen for an interview with the vacationing Preston Root. Preston Root, grandson of Chapman J Root, who owned the glass mill where the bottle was created in 1915. Preston talks about how he heard stories about Alexander when he was little. I was a thrill to hear the story about the time before the bottle and the making of it direct from one in the Root family. Preston Root!

    I have written a book ”The Coca-Cola Trail”, People and Places in the History of Coca-Cola.
    Includes chapters on Terre Haute, Root in both Terre Haute and Daytona, Chattanooga…the Chattanooga glass company…
    and others which may be of interest.
