S. Bend to mark 50 years since Studebaker closed

– The city of South Bend is planning events Friday to mark the 50th anniversary of the final vehicle rolling of the Studebaker assembly line.

Although about 7,000 people lost their jobs when the automaker closed, the city is using the anniversary to look ahead. Union Station Technology Center Vice President for Strategy Shawn Peterson tells the South Bend Tribune the goal is to recognize those who worked at Studebaker for what they’ve done and put the spotlight on innovation to move the community forward.

Admission is free to the Studebaker National Museum on Friday. At dusk, all lights in and around the museum will be turned on, to “ignite the future.” There also will be free public tours of the former Studebaker Administration Building and a former assembly plant.
