Family affair: 3 generations of Maskells work at Electric Boat
15 Oct 2018
In April 1969, Larry Maskell's family moved from a small city in Vermont to Connecticut in search of work.
Maskell's father was employed as a stonecutter but he was concerned about jobs for the rest of the family, namely Maskell and his six siblings.
"When it came time to get jobs, there was no jobs. You either cut stone, you drove a truck or you worked at a chicken farm," Maskell, 62, said in an interview this week.
When he got to Connecticut, Maskell went through the shop program for machinists at New London High School. After graduating high school in 1974, he went straight to work for Electric Boat. He has been at the company ever since.
