This room is dedicated to the Chance family and Chance Company (now Hubbell).

The room includes many photos from 1907 to 1974 when the Chance Company was listed on NYSE. There is a display of anchors dating back to 1912, with most still being sold today.

The Chance Company made military items during war times, including bomb lugs.  Model T Ford piston rings were early year products. Other items produced include cast iron pans, cast aluminum playground equipment and porcelain insulators.

In 1973 $65 cutters were modified to help save Sky Lab II, when solar panels would not open.  Admiral Byrd used Chance Anchors on 2nd Exposition to South Pole.
