   Just out of high school, I worked for Walter E. Heller&Co. I worked on the 19th floor, in the microfilm department. I used to race the elevator taking the stairs. The lounge in the basement had the best meatloaf sandwiches ever. "Steve", the doorman, would give me tapes to listen to of all kinds of bands. Great place, great times.

  I worked for Walter E. Heller, in E.D.P. with Robert T. Mackovitch, Ken Rusdal, and the systems analysts, and programmers. I loved it! Those (now, old) IBM main frames were awesome.

   I worked for Walter e Heller & co on the sixteenth floor in the factoring division. I worked there from July 1967 to may 1970 when Heller transferred me to Charlotte n.c to open up an office for them. It was a great company and a great building.

  The LaSalle street station is still there. This building is getting the outside brick cleaned and windows replaced, it will look a lot better within 12 months.

  This building holds a special place in my heart. I worked for Walter E. Heller, as a file clerk/clerk typist, on the sixteenth floor, from 1966 until 1968. I am pleased to see this building still standing, stately and proud. I used to ride the Rock Island train, into La Salle Street station, which I understand is no longer in existance...what a shame. Chicago is my home town...I miss her.

  I like this building with it's design and communications antennae, the building has great interpretations in the windows and the terra cotta exterior. I also like the contrast with the Sears Tower from the Federal Plaza across the street, or even on the NE corner of Adams and Dearborn Streets.

  Our father, who is now deceased, was the main bookkeeper for this building in the early 1950's. Does anyone know him? His name was Stanley Meyer.At that time there was a FBI office on the 19th floor. Previously that office was quite involved the apprehension of John Dillinger and other notorious crime figures of that earlier era.
