The Heyden Chemical Works, organized with a capital of $150,000, was owned by the Chemische Fabrik von Heyden, of Raveboul, Germany, one of the great German chemical concerns. This company after 1914 did a large business, and its physical property and secret chemical processes and formulas became quite valuable. However with the onset of war, in 1918 A. Mitchell Palmer, Alien Property Custodian, took over the Heyden Chemical Works with its large plant at Garfield, N.J., on evidence showing that this concern, the second largest corporation of its kind in this country, was German owned and was seized as a German asset.
