The Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company (E-J) produced shoes in Binghamton, Johnson City and Endicott. E-J began as the Lester Brothers Boot and Shoe Company in Binghamton in 1890. The company was sold to Henry Bradford Endicott that same year. In 1899, Henry Bradford Endicott made George Johnson his partner. By the 1920s, 20,000 people worked in E-J’s factories. By the mid-1940s, more than 20,000 people were working in the factories as they produced footwear for the military. The company produced 52 million pairs of shoes per year. In the 1950s, E-J had 17,000 to 18,000 employees. Currently, EJ Footwear, LLC is based out of Ohio and operates under Rocky Shoes & Boots, Inc.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at the Endicott-Johnson Corporation are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Asbestos is dangerous because its fibers are extremely fragile and break easily into tiny particles that your body’s air filtration system can’t trap and expel. When asbestos gets into your lungs and stays there, it can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer. Risk of diagnosis increases with the length of time that a person has been exposed although even short exposures can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer. The most common causes of asbestos exposure are in the workplace or from products in the home. Spouses and family members of workers can also be exposed to asbestos dust and fibers from the clothing the workers wore home from job sites like Endicott-Johnson.
Mesothelioma is a rare disease that is diagnosed between 2,500 and 3,000 times each year. Anyone who has been exposed to asbestos is at risk for developing mesothelioma or lung cancer. Although most companies knew that asbestos was dangerous, they continued to allow their employees to work with and around asbestos without protective gear until the late 1970s.
