I was looking through Mom's book again for
information, I noticed something that you might be interested in
knowing. Have you ever thought of where the Bibb motto originated?
It seems that Mr. E. T. Comer, president of the Bibb Manufacturing
Company, read a poem written in the Minnesota Exchange, printed in
1921, with no author given. The line "Keep On
Keeping On" stuck in his mind and he suggested to the board
of the company that this be used as the Bibb motto. This phrase was
instilled in the villager's minds.
