Abstract: The Republic Steel Corporation was formed in April 1930 from several smaller iron and steel companies, including Republic Iron and Steel, Central Alloy Corporation, Bourne-Fuller Company and Donner Steel Company. Corrigan McKinney Steel Company, Truscon Steel Company, and Gulf States Steel were acquired 1935-1937, and the company headquarters was moved from Youngstown, Ohio, to Cleveland, Ohio. The company included basic steel operations in Ohio, Buffalo, New York, Chicago, Illinois, Gadsden, Alabama, and elsewhere, as well as rolling mills, speciality steel operations, iron ore and coal mines, maritime operations, and research laboratories. During the 1980s, economic losses became severe, and in 1984 Jones and Laughlin Steel Corporation merged with Republic Steel, creating LTV Steel Company, a subsidiary of LTV Corporation.
