The Story of Nat Nast
Living the american dream
The Great Depression and World War II were years of sacrifice for Americans, but by 1946, it seemed like everyone wanted to make up for lost time. The post-war years were a time of unprecedented prosperity and optimism. A savvy entrepreneur, Nat Nast seized the opportunity to clothe the millions of Americans who took up bowling by launching The Nat Nast Company in Kansas City, Missouri in 1946. We are sure he could not have known to what degree he was creating an American art form and preserving a special moment in history.
